"The Collected Novels of Jose Saramago"
"Single" eBook / 4,358 pages / Houghton Mifflin Harcourt / Boston, New York / December 2010
Introduction by: Ursula Leguin
Translated by: Margaret Jull Costa and Giovanni Pontiero
This collection, available exclusively in "eBook" form, brings together the twelve novels (and one novella) of the great Portuguese Writer Jose Saramago, with an introductory essay by Ursula Le Guin. From Saramago’s early work like the enchanting "Baltasar and Blimunda" and the controversial "Gospel According to Jesus Christ", through his masterpiece "Blindness" and its sequel "Seeing", to his later fables of politics, chance, history, and love, like "All the Names" and "Death with Interruptions", this volume showcases the range and depth of Saramago’s career, his inimitable narrative voice and his vast reserves of invention humour and understanding.
“Saramago is the most tender of writers… with a clear-eyed and compassionate acknowledgment of things as they are, and a quality that can only be termed wisdom. We should be grateful when it is handed to us in such generous measure” — New York Times
