Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful; Saramago's Best! A piece from Portugal's history when the pride of a king demanded the building of a palace and church so elaborate and detailed that it took years to build and took hundreds of lives in the making. The historical detail is outstanding, as is the love story that serves as a backdrop for this magnificent work of historical fiction.

From Our Editors

It is the early 18th century, at the height of the horrible plague and the terrors of the Inquisition. In Portugal, an apparently incompatible couple falls in love. Baltasar and Blimunda is magical adventure, rich in character, plot and historical detail. A riveting tale of human folly and human will, master writers Jose Saramago and Giovanni Pontiero present an intriguing novel that will dazzle fans. Saramago is also the author of the critically acclaimed Blindness.
