Reviews

  • What distinguishes the book is the concern Saramago breathes over his characters; like potter's clay, they are patiently moulded into their best shape, retaining soft marks of memory

    David Jays, Guardian
  • A novel with impact... hope and charm

    Independent

  • 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

    Frank Egerton, The Times
