A collection of stories written by the late Carlos Ruiz Zafon as a thank you to the countless fans of his bestselling The Shadow of the Wind and The Labyrinth of the Spirits books

Return to the mythical Barcelona library, the Cemetery of Forgotten Books, in this posthumous collection of stories from Carlos Ruiz Zafon, the New York Times bestselling author of The Shadow of the Wind.

Comprising eleven stories, most never before published in English, The City of Mist is Ruiz Zafon's tribute to the countless thousands of readers who joined him on the extraordinary journey through the mysterious gothic world of his beloved Cemetery of Forgotten Books quartet.

A boy decides to become a writer when he discovers that his creative gifts capture the attentions of an aloof young beauty who has stolen his heart. A labyrinth-maker flees Constantinople to a plague-ridden Barcelona, with plans for building a library impervious to the destruction of time. A strange gentleman tempts Cervantes to write a book like no other, each page of which could prolong the life of the woman he loves. And a brilliant Catalan architect named Antoni Gaudi reluctantly agrees to cross the ocean to New York, a voyage that will determine the fate of an unfinished masterpiece.

Imaginative and beguiling, these and other stories in The City of Mist bring to life the mesmerising magic of their brilliant creator and invite us to enter the dream along with him.
