"We'll say it again: Saramago is the finest novelist, bar none."
--starred review "Kirkus "
"A compassionate study of loyalty, love and the ways in which people face the forces trying to obliterate their spirit."
--Francine Prose "People Magazine "
What truly elevates-- is Saramago's style; this fantastically agile, irrepressibly funny, sympathetic, cerebral, and sometimes even corny voice."
--Christian Science Monitor
"The teensiest bit of plot is meaningfully, accessibly stretched into something enormous."
"An unassuming tour de force."
"Saramago says he is really an essayist who took to writing novels. This is true. But the novels are masterly."
"A densely textured, wonderfully resonant reworking of Plato's allegory."
--Time Out New York
"A gripping, beautifully written, utterly enchanting, archaically romantic, and, at times, devastating take on ordinary people struggling to survive."
"Another masterpiece from a remarkable writer who really may be, as many readers believe, the greatest living novelist."
"Arguably the greatest writer of our time. He throw[s] a dazzling flash of lightning on his subjects."
Informed that his clay pots and jugs are no longer needed in light of plastic alternatives, elderly potter Cipriano applies his craft to the making of ceramic dolls, but his family's subsequent successes are compromised by a terrible discovery that causes them to leave their home. By the Nobel Prize-winning author of Blindness. Reprint. 50,000 first printing.
