Editorial reviews (2 reviews)


This novel may be Saramago’s most autobiographical, but in a roundabout way. Drawing on what he knew of the lives of his grandparents and their parents, he wrote about the existence he might have known if he hadn’t had the good fortune to have been born no earlier than he was, and to have been almost supernaturally intelligent and gifted.

This brutal vaudeville is packed with Saramago’s dense and beautiful prose. Skeptics may wonder if the book is any good, but the more relevant question is why it took so long for an English version of this strange novel to finally appear.
