Here, in The Fat Man and Infinity, the heir to Conrad and Faulkner (George Steiner) reflects on the fractured paradise of his childhood—the world of prim, hypocritical, class-riven Lisbon in midcentury.

His Proust-like memoirs, written over thirty years in chronicle form, pass through the filter of an adult who has known war and pain, and bear witness to the people whom he loved and who have gone into the dark. Stunningly translated by Margaret Jull Costa, in prose that glides like poetry, this is a modern-day chronicle of Portugals imperfect past and arresting present, seen through the eyes of a master fiction writer, one on a short list to win a Nobel Prize.

Readers particularly touched by Frank McCourts Angelas Ashes will be drawn to this journey into the heart of one of our greatest living writers.
