"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

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

Con un lenguaje desbordante, riquísimo en recursos expresivos -donde cada palabra parece haber sido pulida hasta alcanzar una nueva categoría-, Lobo Antunes profundiza admirablemente en el alma humana hasta su médula más desnuda

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

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

22 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in Portuguese and Spanish 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
Pedro Cabrita Reis : one after another, a few silent steps by Cabrita Reis( Book )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the early nineteen nineties, the work of Pedro Cabrita Reis (born 1956 in Lisbon) has revolved around the subjects of homes, housing, architecture and territory. Alongside works based on such elements of everyday as tables and chairs, doors and windows, he also regularly creates installations which take possession of exhibition spaces by means of architectonic structures that are as complex as they are violent. With hulking brick walls, found objects and industrial materials such as neon tubes, sheets of glass, steel supports or coarse boards he undermines the classic white cube or unceremoniously occupies a large baroque ceremonial room with a series of shantytowns Crudely knocked together house boxes such as The Project (2002) deny a look inside; doors lead nowhere, staircases into nothingness. Blind Cities is the title of a group of works whose stoic, melancholy appearance references the "homelessness" of humanity as a basic constant of the human condition and thus to one of the leitmotifs of Cabrita Reis's oeuvre."--Publisher's website
