The Blind Fisherman is a compilation of Mia Couto's early short stories - as first presented to the English-speaking world in his two collections: Voices Made Night (1990) and Every Man is a Race (1994). It was in these collections that Mia Couto first announced himself as a writer of international importance, constructing stories that blended the unique history of Mozambique with a magic realism that both transcended and was inspired by the legacy of Portuguese colonialism and the subsequent civil war.

Extraordinary vision . . . his prose is suffused with striking images ( The Washington Post)
To read Mia Couto is to encounter a peculiarly African sensibility, a writer of fluid, fragmentary narratives ... remarkable ( New Statesman)
Mia Couto is considered one of Mozambique's most important writers and his works have been published in more than twenty countries around the world. An international jury at the Zimbabwe International Book Fair named his first novel, Terra Sonâbula one of the best twelve African books of the twentieth century and in 2007 he became the first African author to win the prestigious Latin Union literary prize.
