- 192 PAGES
Recollecting a youth split between the tiny village of Azinhaga and the growing city of Lisbon, the late Portuguese Nobel laureate recreates a childhood both dark and magical, full of boiled roots and colorful characters. Partially raised by his peasant grandparents, Saramago is especially moving when describing his growing fascination with the power of literature (he taught himself to read). Margaret Jull Costa's translation captures the author's simple, witty style.
