Description: In the tradition of William Faulkner and Gabriel García Márquez, one of the twentieth century’s most original literary voices offers kaleidoscopic visions of a modern Portugal scarred by its Fascist past and its bloody colonial wars in Africa (Paris Review). Hailed as a masterpiece of world literature, The Land at the End of the World—in an acclaimed translation by Margaret Jull Costa—recounts the anguished tale of a Portuguese medic haunted by memories of war. Like the Ancient Mariner who will tell his tale to anyone who listens, the narrator’s evening unfolds like a fever dream that is both tragic and haunting. The result is one of the great war novels of the modern age.Splendid. . . . An unusually observant writer.—Larry Rohter, New York TimesThis Portuguese genius has seen too much, indeed, but in giving witness to the wasteland he has given us wonderful gifts.—William Giraldi, Daily Beast/Newsweek
