Small Memories, Paperback / softback Book

Small Memories Paperback / softback


Born in 1922 in the tiny Portuguese village of Azinhaga, Jose Saramago was only a baby when his family moved to a series of cramped lodgings in a working-class neighbourhood of Lisbon.

Nevertheless, he would return to the village throughout his early life, its river and olive groves seeping deep into his memory. Shifting between Azinhaga and Lisbon, this touching book is a mosaic of memories.

Written with characteristic wit and honesty, Small Memories traces the formation of an artist always fascinated by language and who emerged, against all odds, as one of the world's most respected writers.
