Reviews:
  New York Times
      "Saramago is the most tender of writers...with a clear-eyed and compassionate acknowledgment of things as they are, and a quality that can only be termed wisdom. We should be grateful when it is handed to us in such generous measure.
  Chicago Tribune
      "He has the power to throw a dazzling flash of lightning on his subjects, an eerily and impossibly prolonged moment of clarity that illuminates details beyond the power of sunshine to reveal."
  Christian Science Monitor
      "Reading the Portuguese writer José Saramago, one quickly senses the presence of a master."
  —John Updike, The New Yorker
      "Our impression is of a writer, like Faulkner, so confident of his resources and ultimate destination that he can bring any impossibility to life by hurling words at it."
