Product Description: “Small Memories is a . . . nourishing last gift from a great writer.”—Washington PostShifting back and forth between childhood and his teenage years, between Azinhaga and Lisbon, this is a mosaic of memories, a simply told, affecting look into the author’s boyhood: the tragic death of his older brother at the age of four; his mother pawning the family’s blankets every spring and buying them back in time for winter; his beloved grandparents bringing the weaker piglets into their bed on cold nights; and Saramago’s early encounters with literature, from teaching himself to read by deciphering articles in the daily newspaper, to poring over an entertaining dialogue in a Portuguese-French conversation guide, not realizing that he was in fact reading a play by Molière...read more

Qué diablo de Dios es éste que, para enaltecer a Abel, desprecia a Caín. Su novela más sorprendente y polémica. Saramago nos regaló una cruda y humorística parodia del gobierno del Cielo.Si en El Evangelio según Jesucristo José Saramago nos dio su visión del Nuevo Testamento, en Caín regresa a los primeros libros de la Biblia. En un itinerario heterodoxo, recorre ciudades decadentes y establos, palacios de tiranos y campos de batalla de la mano de los principales protagonistas del Antiguo Testamento, imprimiéndole la música y el humor refinado que caracterizan su obra.Caín pone de manifiesto lo que hay de moderno y sorprendente en la prosa de Saramago: la capacidad de hacer nueva una historia que se conoce de principio a fin. Un irónico y mordaz recorrido en el que el lector asiste a una guerra secular, y en cierto modo, involuntaria, entre el creador y su criatura. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION If in The Gospel According to Jesus Christ, José Saramago presented us with his vision of the New Testament, in Cain he comes back to the first books of the Bible. An unorthodox itinerary takes him to decadent cities and stables, palaces of tyrants and battlefields, led by the hand of the central characters of the Old Testament, with the music and refined humor that are the hallmark of his work. Cain clearly demonstrates the modern and surprising aspects of Saramago's prose: the ability to weave a completely new tale out of a story we all know. An ironic and satirical journey where the reader is present at a secular—and in a way, involuntary—battle between the creator and his creature.

On the first day of the new year, no one dies. This of course causes consternation among politicians, religious leaders, morticians, and doctors. Among the general public, on the other hand, there is initially celebration—flags are hung out on balconies, people dance in the streets. They have achieved the great goal of humanity: eternal life. Then reality hits home—families are left to care for the permanently dying, life-insurance policies become meaningless, and funeral parlors are reduced to arranging burials for pet dogs, cats, hamsters, and parrots.Death sits in her chilly apartment, where she lives alone with scythe and filing cabinets, and contemplates her experiment: What if no one ever died again? What if she, death with a small d, became human and were to fall in love?

A large crack along the Pyrenees separates the Iberian Peninsula from the rest of Europe causing Spain and Portugal to become a great floating island. The characters on this great ship made of rock travel endlessly towards a new utopia. Description in Spanish: Nosotros también somos ibéricos. De la noche a la mañana Europa apareció cubierta con esta pintada. "La balsa de piedra" parte de un audaz planteamiento narrativo. Una grieta abierta espontáneamente a lo largo de los Pirineos provoca la separación del continente europeo de toda la península Ibérica, transformándola en una gran isla flotante, moviéndose sin remos ni velas ni hélices en dirección al sur del mundo, camino de una utopía nueva: el encuentro cultural de los pueblos del otro lado del Atlántico, desafiando así el dominio sofocante que Estados Unidos de la América del Norte vienen ejerciendo en aquellos parajes. Una visión dos veces utópica entendería esta ficción política como una metáfora mucho más generosa y humana: que Europa, toda ella, deberá trasladarse hacia el sur de manera que, en compensación por sus abusos coloniales, antiguos y modernos, ayude a equilibrar el mundo. Es decir, Europa finalmente como ética. Los personajes de "La balsa de piedra" -dos mujeres, tres hombres y un perro- viajan incansablemente a través de la Península mientras ella va surcando el océano. El mundo está cambiando y ellos sabe que deben buscar en sí mismos las personas nuevas en que se convertirán. Eso les basta.
