Product Description

About the Author

Of novelist Goncalo M. Tavares, professor of epistemology at the University of Lisbon, Nobel laureate Jose Saramago declared, "Tavares has no right to be writing so well at the age of thirty-five. One feels like punching him"--and later said, "Goncalo M. Tavares burst onto the Portuguese literary scene armed with an utterly original imagination that broke through all the traditional imaginative boundaries. I've predicted that in thirty years' time, if not before, he will win the Nobel Prize and I'm sure my prediction will come true. My only regret is that I won't be there to give him a congratulatory hug."Tavares is the winner of numerous international awards, including the Brazilian Premio Portugal Telecom in 2007 for "Jerusalem" and the 2010 Prix du Meilleur Livre etranger for "Apprendre a prier a l'ere de la technique (Aprender a Rezar na Era da Tecnica / Learning to Pray in the Age of Technique)."Roopanjali Roy has been a Portuguese translator and interpreter for more than twenty years, translating more than seventeen books of literature and history. Since 2004 she has been a lecturer in Hindi and Indian culture at the Universidade Catiolica in Lisbon.Rachel Caiano is a Portuguese artist and illustrator of fiction, children's literature, book covers, and other publications.Author Philip Graham is professor in the creative writing program at the Universty of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and also teaches in the low-residency MFA program of the Vermont College of Fine Arts.

Exhilarating reading 3 Dec. 2012
By The Open Books - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The books of the 'Neighborhood' collection (of which here is a first batch of 6 'senhores') are little gems of imagination and deceptively absurd humor. This is a highly original literary project by the author of "Jerusalem". Watch out: sparks of genius!
