Editorial Reviews

"In this original, lucid and stimulating book Jonathan Boulter provides a fascinating synthesis of work by four major contemporary novelists from different cultures across the globe. His chapter on Saramago is a refreshing and innovative study of three of his major novels and is surely a major new contribution to understanding of his work."
