Lisbon is a beautiful city. As I live in Ireland, I rarely get to visit it. But I am "living" in Lisbon when I have a book by Antonio Lobo Antunes in my hand. Atmosphere, people, decadence, odours, the Tagus, "the eucalptus trees shedding tears of incurable despair." Lobo Antunes is one of today's great writers. When one reads him, one can never return to the anaemic New Yorker style of writing.

I am looking forward to read a book by Antunes, António Lobo - "O esplendor de Portugal". I have never read him before. I searched my city-library for Portugal and Lisbon and came up with this book. I was in Lisboa in 1989 and I believe Lisboa to be one of the moste beautiful citys I have visited. If someone wold like to see my photos from that visit, welcome to my homepage, and klick link "photo" and then link "interrail 1989".

perfectly sad and truthful. and beautiful. in one sentence he sometimes sums up the history and future of life using explosive colors and shades.

he is using such strong images, it's like he is projecting a movie on the back of my eyes, every time I read one of his books. portuguese literature is beautiful, it has some of the orange trees perfume in it, but antonio lobo antunes is one of the most powerful writers I ever read.
