From the Nobel Prize-winning author: a€œA capacious, funny, threatening novela€ of wandering souls and political upheaval in 1930s Portugal (The New York Times Book Review). The year is 1936, and the dictator AntA³nio de Oliveira Salazar is establishing himself in Portugal, edging his country toward civil war.
