I’m off for a week to Portugal, homeland of Pessoa, Andrade and Camoens and… mmh, my Portuguese culture only takes me so far. I don’t know much about Portugal except for clichés, but for some reasons I have a strong nostalgia of Macau, the last of Portuguese territories overseas, and the last of European territories in Asia.
I’m leaving with some related literature:
- Robert Wilson, A small death in Lisbon
- Philippe Pons, Macao
Can you recommend any other book set in Lisbon or written by a Portuguese writer?
But I couldn’t stop at only two books, could I? So, I take a cosy mystery by Carolyn Hart, the first of the Death on Demand series. And my dear husband chose a love story for me by Peter Ackroyd. Mmh, four books in one week, that’s a bit too much, but I really can’t choose. See you soon!
