The splendor of Portugal by António Lobo Antunes( Book )

67 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in 8 languages and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Splendor of Portugal's four narrators are members of a once well-to-do family whose plantation was lost in the Angolan War of Independence; the matriarch of this unhappiest of clans and her three adult children speak in a nightmarish, obsessive gush to give us the details of their grotesque family life and its consequences. Like a character out of Faulkner's decayed south, the mother clings to the hope that her children will come back, save her from destitution, and restore the family's imagined former glory. The children, for their part, haven't seen each other in years, and in their isolation are tormented by feverish memories of Angola. The vitriol and self-hatred of the characters know no bounds, for they are at once victims and culprits, guilty of atrocities committed in the name of colonialism as well as innumerable humiliations and betrayals of their own kin."--P. [4] of cover

The narrator of this stark and elegantly translated novel is a psychiatrist named Antnio Lobo Antunes, returning from vacation to his loathed job at Miguel Bombarda Hospital in Lisbon. Over the course of the trip, the narrator's mind ranges over the monstrosities he encountered in the colonial wars in Angola in the 1970s and in his work; through the layering of memories, he draws parallels between the destruction of the war and the questionable care offered to the mentally ill

Memoria de elefante, primera novela de António Lobo Antunes, publicada en Portugal en 1979, es el retrato de una crisis existencial. El protagonista, un psiquiatra residente en Lisboa cuya verdadera vocación es la escritura, cuenta a través de una voz exuberante, facetas y capítulos de su vida, haciendo hincapié en los aspectos más íntimos y comprometidos. A lo largo de un día y una noche el héroe y narrador de esta historia pone de manifiesto la voluntad de escucharse a sí mismo, y de este modo hallar definitivamente una identidad perdida tiempo atrás. Memoria de elefante anuncia la llegada de un autor que destaca por la originalidad en su forma de contar, y lo que es aún más destacable: un escritor que provoca en el lector una forma insólita de leer
A ordem natural das coisas by António Lobo Antunes( Book )

39 editions published between 1992 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Diez personas enfrentadas con la muerte. Porque de la muerte trata esta novela que sobrecoge desde la primera página, con un lenguaje que su autor convierte en un escalpelo con el que se introduce en el alma humana hasta límites difícilmente imaginables, mezclando tiempos, intercalando la historia de su país con las de sus personajes, en un torbellino de recuerdos y fantasías que toman cuerpo en una prosa bellísima, minuciosa y lenta unas veces, vertiginosa y sarcástica otras, articulada cuidadosamente para alcanzar su equilibrio entre la ruptura formal y la aparente confusión

32 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Qué haré cuando todo arde? by António Lobo Antunes( Book )

23 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

António Lobo Antunes se adentra en el mundo marginal y desconocido del travestismo, la homosexualidad y la drogadicción. Nos narra la historia de una familia discriminada, llena de conflictos, secretos y rupturas, a través de los recuerdos de Paulo, un joven que creció bajo la tutela de un padre travesti y una madre alcohólica. Su vida, a la deriva, discurre entre las calles de un humilde barrio lisboeta, el oscuro lugar donde consigue las drogas que le ayudan a evadirse de una realidad que le supera, y el centro psiquiátrico en que los médicos tratan de encarrilar su vida y restaurar los restos de una existencia en llamas. La belleza de su prosa, su exactitud y rigor, así como la compleja arquitectura de sus novelas, le convierten en el escritor más inteligente y seductor de la actual narrativa. María Luis Blanco, ABC Cultural

Boa tarde às coisas aqui em baixo : romance by António Lobo Antunes( Book )

29 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Buenas tardes a la cosas de aquí abajo es todo aquello que quedó por decir en Esplendor de Portugal, es su entrelínea, su discurso desestructurado; sueños, pesadillas, múltiples evocaciones que se repiten una y otra vez en letanías, estrofas de una gran oración en la que se refugia un confuso coro de personajes. El autor ha regresado a Angola recién desmantelado el dominio colonial para, a través de un delgado hilo argumental basado en una supuesta reactivación del tráfico de diamantes, mostrarnos las miserias de Seabra, Miguéis y Gonçalves, pretendidos agentes del Servicio Secreto portugués cuyo viaje no es más que un descenso a los recuerdos, a la infancia, a lo más profundo de sus entrañas, al tiempo que nos gastaba sin pasar, ajeno a nosotros, encontrándonos de repente . Más que leer una novela, nos adentramos en un magma narrativo, anterior o acaso al margen de las estructuras conocidas. El País
