Item Details

Seeing.

New York: Harcourt, 2006. First edition of the Nobel Prize-winning author's sequel to Blindness. Octavo, original half cloth. Signed and dated by Saramago. Fine in a fine dust jacket.

"The clarity and compassion of [Saramago's] vision make Seeing worthy of its name" (The Washington Post). "Saramago for the last 25 years stood his own with any novelist of the Western world [..] He was the equal of Philip Roth, Gunther Grass, Thomas Pynchon and Don DeLillo. His genius was remarkably versatile — he was at once a great comic and a writer of shocking earnestness and grim poignancy. It is hard to believe he will not survive" (Harold Bloom).
