About the Author

Reviews

"The opening pages of this posthumously published memoir of early childhood by Saramago are rapturously enthralling..."
--Kirkus Reviews

"The memories are not only small and immediate, vignettes with a sense of being interjected rather than relayed, but told with the immediacy of a child's gaze, so very different from an adult's reflection...[An] homage to Saramago's family and homeland, but also...the endlessly renewable life of the mind."
--The Independent (UK)

"A great memoir...a tapestry of reminiscences stitched together haphazardly but with his usual irresistible charm... These are fragments of emotion and sensuous recollection that together poignantly conjure a distant childhood."
--Metro.co.uk"A moving account of his childhood and adolescence"
--The Spectator (UK)"I'll admit to having wept at the close of two of Saramago's novels, but his tale here is a gentler, more elegiac one. Small memories, perhaps, but a small masterpiece, too."
--The Business Post (Ireland)"The Master of Lisbon shows the grandeur of small things recollected in this refulgent memoir."
--Mail & Guardian (South Africa) "In Small Memories, Saramago examines the richness of his early experiences, taking pleasure in writing his past as the work of the man that he finally became."
--World Literature Today
