Like a Fading Shadow
Farrar, Straus and Giroux
Part historical fiction, part memoir, this hybrid novel by the Spanish author imagines the final days of Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassin—in Lisbon, on the lam—which in turn calls to mind Molina’s own fascination with the city where he lived as a young man running from responsibility.
