Publication Date01 Mar 2018
Book DescriptionThis deeply personal work, follows the changing fortunes of the Mau-Tempo family - poor, landless peasants not unlike the author's own grandparents. Saramago charts the lives of the family in Alentejo, southern Portugal, as national and international events rumble on in the background - the coming of the republic in Portugal, the First and Second World Wars, and an attempt on the dictator Salazar's life. Yet, nothing seriously impinges on the farm labourers' lives until the first stirrings of communism.
Editorial ReviewThis is a rich novel about a family of landless agricultural workers struggling over four generations… Readers of José Saramago will not be surprised at this original combination of serious denunciation of injustice with sarcasm and humour… Such an allusive novel, with its own orthodoxy in punctuation and subtle shifts of tone, is especially hard to translate. It reads beautifully well
