Inhaltsangabe: Senhor Jose is an official in a registry office, with a passion for unearthing every detail and reconstructing people's lives from the bare data in the archive documents. One file in particular challenges him: a woman's date and place of birth are missing, and so he begins his research in earnest.
Rezension: A tantalizing novel-shifting and teasing, full of metaphorical labyrinths and false trails.-The Herald (London) Offers an unearthly, muted beauty; a freedom from the obvious, the ideological and trivial; an atmosphere of profound serenity, and a benevolent humor.-Literary Review It is the marriage of the living and the dying...that so strongly characterizes the writing of JosE Saramago.-The New Statesman The Swedish Academy's citation called his novels 'parables sustained by imagination, compassion and irony.' It is a description which perfectly captures his latest novel.-The Times (London)
