Item description for Las pequenas memorias (Biblioteca) (Spanish Edition) by Jose Saramago & Pilar Del Rio...

This Nobel Prize winner s latest work takes the reader to his childhood: some parts in Azhinaga, the town where he was born, and other parts in Lisbon where he left to when he was two. With the poetic prose that characterizes him, and without resentments, even though it is full of hardships, Saramago narrates about the misery in which his family lived. Contains photos with comments made in his own handwriting. A person writes about their adult memoirs perhaps to say, Look how important I am. I have written memoirs of my youth, and I felt young as I was writing them; I wanted readers to know where the man I am today came from. So, I focused on the years from four to fifteen. Jos Saramago

Reviews - What do customers think about Las pequenas memorias (Biblioteca) (Spanish Edition)?

The seedling of a great writer and man  Feb 4, 2008
I was very fortunate to attend a summer workshop given by Saramago in Universidad Menéndez Pelayo in Salamanca, Spain, in 2001. I had only read Ensayo sobre la Ceguera then, and his short stories. I was hooked. I found in the classroom that he is an even better speaker. Very engaging, down to earth, witty and profound, all at once. Although I admire his style and his quality as a human being, I have found some of his titles cumbersome to read. His lack of "proper" punctuation (which he has turned into a style) can be difficult to read when the book is long and the subject deep.
This book is open, honest, written without giving himself airs, and is like catching glimpses of his past. He doesn't write his memoirs in exact chronological order, but his writing is like that ... it flows. His wife, Pilar del Río is his translator from Portuguese to Spanish and she does a good job of that.
I read the book because I am going to review it for a newspaper and write an article about him and all I can say is: I enjoyed reading about the seedling of a great writer and man.
Beautiful  Jul 2, 2007
Saramago's style is just delicious, and he tells his life like a tale. Humble, too humble even for a nobel prize winner, and admirably humble in comparison to his homologues.
If you know Saramago, you will not be disappointed by this autobiography (with pictures in the end.) If you don't know him yet, this is an excellent piece to start.
