In a country whose name is not mentioned, something never before seen since the beginning of time happens: death decides to stop its unflagging track and people stop dying. From that moment on, the destiny of human kind will be to live eternally. A short period of euphoria is followed by despair and chaos. People search for ways to trick death into killing; the elderly are seen with the hatred reserved only for that which we cannot alter. Nobel Prize winner (1998) Jose Saramago offers a literary narrative that centers on human perplexity when faced with one of the unavoidable realities of our existence ?death.
