9780099461654: The Double: (Enemy)

Watching a rented video, Tertuliano Maximo Afonso is shocked to notice that one of the actors is identical to him in every physical detail. He embarks on a secret quest to find his double and sets in motion a train of events that he cannot control. Saramago's novel explores the nature of individuality and examines the fear and insecurity that arise when our singularity comes under threat, when even a wife cannot tell the original from the imposter...

Review:

"Quite unlike anything else" ( London Review of Books)

"A Borgesian fable with a marvellous flavour all its own" (Phillip Hensher, Books of the Year Spectator)

"A comic and profound exploration of the self... A uniquely seductive writer" ( Daily Telegraph)

" The Double is Saramago at his most practised and polished. It is philosophy and thriller rolled into one" ( Independent)

"Indebted to Borges and with a nod to Auster, he manages to surpass both with the audacity and sheer erudition of his prose" (Catherine Taylor The Guardian)

Book Description:

The book that has inspired the film ENEMY. The film stars Jake Gyllenhaal as two characters, and co-stars Mélanie Laurent, Isabella Rossellini, Sarah Gadon, Stephen R. Hart, and Jane Moffat.
