“A heart so white” by Javier Marías

“This celebrated European best-seller opens with an unexplained suicide in Madrid forty years before the narrator is born, when the aunt he´ll never meet leaves the lunch table and shoots herself in the chest. The next chapter jumps to his honeymoon from him, as he overhears lovers plotting murder, perhaps, in the next room of a Havana hotel. His father is a curator who regularly defrauds major museums. This seems like material for a thriller, but A Heart So White is a reflective book.”
