Product description

Review

"He was the equal of Philip Roth, Günter Grass, Thomas Pynchon and Don DeLillo. His genius was remarkably versatile - he was at once a great comic and a writer of shocking earnestness and grim poignancy." (Harold Bloom)

"Saramago is a writer, like Faulkner, so confident of his resources and ultimate destination that he can bring any improbability to life." (John Updike)

"No candidate for a Nobel Prize has a better claim to lasting recognition than this novelist." (Edmund White)

"Saramago is a writer of formidable talent and extraordinary imagination." (La Repubblica) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Book Description

A wonderful and witty book, part folk fable, part philosophical tale, by the winner of the 1998 Nobel Prize for Literature and the greatest Portuguese writer of his time. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
