Old Beginnings and New Endings

by Thomas C on Sep 18, 2010

When the Iberian peninsula suddenly and slowly separates itself from Europe and drifts purposefully into the Atlantic the world reacts in a confused but predictable fashion. Jose Saramago focuses his story on five individuals who each experience their version of a vision of this event and who, through the course of the story, meet each other and travel through what is now an island together. It 's a tale of discovery, love, humor, politics and life as only the author can tell it.
