Sacramento à Lapa, Lisbon. The main introductory speech was by Dr Ana Paula Arnaut
of the University of Coimbra. Saramago’s own speech evoked, inter alia, his newly
“IN DIALOGUE WITH SARAMAGO: ESSAYS IN COMPARATIVE LITERATURE”,
eds. Mark Sabine and Adriana Alves de Paula Martins (Manchester, England: University of
Manchester Press, Manchester Spanish and Portuguese Studies, 2006).
Added are four photos from the book signing part of the event, featuring variously:
Dr Ana Paula Arnaut (University of Coimbra), Agostinho Pereira (Viana do Castelo) and myself.
Photos are, as appropriate, either by myself or by Agostinho (to whom grateful thanks).
