  • There are certain writers who will deliver something special with each new book, and Jos- Saramago is one of them

    Sunday Telegraph
  • Saramago resolves the story with the same charm that characterises the whole book...he advocates a simpler life based on family and 'the small miracles of love'. He does so with humility, but also with implacable conviction
