About the Author

Born in Portugal in 1922, Jose Saramago was one of the most important writers of his generation. He was in his fifties when he came to prominence as a novelist with the publication of Baltasar & Blimunda. A huge body of work followed, which included plays, poetry, short stories, non-fiction and over a dozen novels, including Blindness which was made into an acclaimed film. He has been translated into more than forty languages, and in 1998 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. He died on 18 June 2010, shortly after the Portuguese publication of Cain.

Reviews

"The greatest of his novels" * New Statesman * "Lovely...a work of fluent and amazing gracefulness" * Independent * "A capacious, funny, threatening novel" * New York Times Review of Books * "He has created a body of work of luminous power: ironic, intellectually playful, dense and strange" * Scotsman * "Shows Saramago to be a novelist of the grandest sort...it is a dramatic work of great philosophical weight, filtered through a refined contemplative intelligence" * Independent *
