9780151851980: The Stone Raft

One day a rift opens up along the border between Spain and France, and the Iberian peninsula floats off westward across the Atlantic, a great stone raft. But what of the floating population? For the men and women in this story, it's the beginning of a journey of self-discovery.

Review:

"An irresistible blend of shrewd detail and lyrical fantasy... A seductive novel that needs to be savoured" (Helen Dunmore Observer)

"An invitation to one of the richest bodies of work by a living writer" (Amanda Hopkinson New Statesman)

"Jose Saramago's brilliant evocation...is magical realism of a sort that stirs real wonder" (James Park Time Out)

"Saramago's lovely and original questing story, in a lineage of others such as Don Quixote and Kipling's Kim, is a journey of the spirit told as a journey of the feet" (Richard Eder Los Angeles Times)

"Tremendous wit is always apparent in his imaginative conceits, comic digression and verbal and narrative games" (Ian Critchley Sunday Times)

Book Description:

A majestic tale, rich in allegory, wit and philosophy; another masterpiece from the Nobel prize-winning novelist Jose Saramago.
