First edition in English of the Nobel Prize-winning author’s sequel to Blindness. Octavo, original half cloth. Signed and dated by Jose Saramago. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Translated from the Portuguese by Margaret Jull Costa.

"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, Gunter 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).
