Beschreibung:

Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Antonio Lobo Antunes's many novels have established him as "without doubt the greatest Portuguese writer now living, " Le Monde has written. In The Return of the Caravels he delivers a marvelous, unforgettable novel of Portuguese colonials returning from Africa. The Return of the Caravels is set in Lisbon in the 1970s, as Portugal's African colonies are dissolving. In a contemporary rejoinder to Camoes's conquest epic, The Lusiads, Antunes imagines Vasco da Gama and his fellow heroes of Portuguese exploration beached amid the detritus of the empire's collapse. As da Gama begins to reconquer Lisbon by winning it, piece by piece, in fixed card games, four hundred years of Portuguese history mingle -- the caravels dock next to Iraqi oil tankers, and the slave trade rubs shoulders with the duty-free shops. The Return of the Caravels is a rich and uncompromising look at one of Europe's great colonial powers, and how the era of conquest reshaped not just Portugal but the world. "When Antunes is in full heat . he reads like William Faulkner or Celine." -- Bill Marx, The Boston Globe. Buchnummer des Verkäufers

Inhaltsangabe: Called "hallucinatory and lyrical" (Publishers Weekly), The Return of the Caravels -- selected as a New York times Summer Reading title -- is a powerful indictment of Portuguese colonialism and another literary tour de force from the pen of Antonio Lobo Antunes, "the greatest living Portuguese writer" (Vogue). It is set in Lisbon as Portugal's African colonies gain their independence in the mid-1970s. In a contemporary response to Camoes's conquest epic The Lusiads, Antunes imagines Vasco da Gama and other heroes of Portuguese explorations beached amid the detritus of the empire's collapse. Or is it the modern colonials -- with their mixed-race heritage and uneasy place in the "fatherland" -- who have somehow ended up in sixteenth-century Lisbon? As da Gama begins winning back ownership of Lisbon piece by piece in crooked card games, four hundred years of Portuguese history mingle -- the caravels dock next to Iraqi oil tankers, and the slave trade rubs shoulders with the duty-free shops. The Return of the Caravels is a startling and uncompromising look at one of Europe's great colonial powers, and how the era of conquest reshaped not just Portugal but the world. "... the voice of Nabokov by way of Cortazar, Gogol by way of Dylan." -- Jonathan Levi, Los Angeles Times Book Review "Antunes has empathy for the contradictions of human feeling. He is a warm-bloodied writer."-- Michael Pye, The New York Times Book Review "[Antunes] deserves a wide audience of discerning readers." -- Michael Mewshaw, The Washington Post Book World

Über den Autor: António Lobo Antunes, who has been called 'one of Portugal's pre-eminent writers' by The New York Times, was born in Lisbon in 1942, where he still resides. The son of a physician, he too became a doctor and then spent four years in the Portuguese army during the Angolan war. His fictional 'memoir' of that war, South of Nowhere, was internationally praised and followed by other widely translated and much-honored novels, including Act of the Damned, Fado Alexandrino, Explanation of the Birds, and The Natural Order of Things.
