If you would like to know instead of simply yacking on in ignorance you might go and read one of his books. If you can't read you might go watch an interesting movie called The Stone Raft. There is a trailer in Portuguese at
but the DVD is available in Spanish with English subtitles.

Absolutely right. Thank you for writing this.
Saramago was a world class writer and deserves to be better known and read in the US.

I looked on the file sharing system and there is nothing available in English for easy download, only Spanish and a few Portuguese. I must confess that I didn't realize that the Stone Raft was one of his until I looked him up.
