As the show put it: "The Spanish writer Carlos Ruiz Zafón has attracted an international audience with his series of metaphysical thrillers. Here, he expresses his love of 'low' genre writing, his distrust of the overtly literary writing of some of his countrymen, and his desire to create a novel that can't be put down. In other words, his characters and his readers enter a pact with literature's oldest devils: plot and artifice."
