Description
The matriarch of a once well-to-do family whose plantation was destroyed in the Angolan War of Independence longs for her adult children to restore it to its glory, in this novel by the author of What Can I Do When Everything's on Fire? The children return to their native Portugal, eager to forget the horrors of Angola, but as the siblings prepare to meet up for the first time in years, it is clear that all of their scars are intact. Written from the points of view of each of the characters, The Splendors of Portugal is a black comedy about the lingering effects of colonialism.

"[António Lobo Antunes's] formidably concentrated, ironic fictions engage moral and political issues in a way that makes him heir to Conrad and to Faulkner. For the English-language reader, there is a world to discover."—George Steiner
