A general theory of oblivion by José Eduardo Agualusa( Book )
33 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 547 libraries worldwide
"As the country goes through various political upheavals from colony to socialist republic to civil war to peace and capitalism, the world outside seeps into Ludo's life through snippets on the radio, voices from next door, glimpses of someone peeing on a balcony, or a man fleeing his pursuers. A General Theory of Oblivion is a perfectly crafted, wild patchwork of a novel, playing on a love of storytelling and fable"--
Creole by José Eduardo Agualusa( Book )
46 editions published between 1997 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 340 libraries worldwide
"May 1868. Yesterday evening I disembarked at Luanda, carried onto the shore by two sailors from Cabinda. Hurled onto the beach, wet and humiliated, I was immediately assaulted by the alarming sensation of having left the real world behind me. I breathed in the hot, humid Angolan air, aware of the sweet scents of fruit and sugar-cane, and gradually began to recognise another smell, something subtler, more melancholy, not unlike the smell of death and decay..." "So begin the travels of Fradique Mendes, Portuguese aristocrat and adventurer. His journey will take him through the backwoods of Angola, across the wild seas to colonial Brazil and back home to his native Lisbon. A Brazilian mercenary will make an attempt on his life; kidnappings and midnight escapes, alligator hunts, violent deaths and dizzying parties, all these will be recorded in his passionate and evocative letters home." "As he travels across three continents Fradique will bear witness to the end of the Portuguese slave trade and the Empire's painful attempts to reinvent itself for the modern age. His journey will bring him into contact with slaves and aristocrats, slave-owners and abolitionists, capoeira fighters and witch-doctors. Most importantly, he will meet Ana Olimpia Vaz de Caminha, a former slave-girl said to be the most beautiful woman in the world - and fall deeply in love with her."--BOOK JACKET

"Misto de história de aventuras e de alegoria ecológica, o novo romance de José Eduardo Agualusa é uma visitação à humanidade entre as nuvens ? em pleno céu, onde uma nova vida pode ser possível. "Depois que o mundo acabou fomos para o céu." Assim começa este romance. Na sequência de um desastre de proporções bíblicas ? o Dilúvio ?, os ricos das grandes cidades constroem enormes dirigíveis e vão viver para o céu. Os pobres improvisam balões, que prendem uns aos outros, ligados a redes, formando imensas aldeias flutuantes. Carlos Tucano nasce numa destas aldeias. Carlos deixa a aldeia onde nasceu e parte à procura do pai, desaparecido numa tempestade. Ao longo desta peregrinação, vai-nos dando a ver a vida no céu, com os seus prodígios, os seus mistérios, e também os seus desacertos, ao mesmo tempo que estabelece ligações com toda uma galeria de personagens extraordinários ? uma curandeira e sonhadora profissional sul-africana, um pirata indonésio arrependido, um navegador solitário cego, além de uma adolescente rebelde, Aimée, que conhece no mais belo dirigível do mundo ? o Paris. Segundo o Dicionário dos Nefelibatas, incluído no livro, as nuvens (água em estado onírico) são o alfabeto do céu. Este romance ajuda-nos a decifrá-las." [4e de couv.]
