Born in Portugal in 1922 in the tiny village of Azinhaga, Jose
Saramago was only eighteen months old when he moved with his father
and mother to live in a series of cramped lodgings in a
working-class neighbourhood of Lisbon. Nevertheless, he would
return to the village throughout his childhood and adolescence, its
river landscape and olive groves seeping deep into his memory.
Shifting back and forth between Azinhaga and Lisbon, this touching
book is a mosaic of memories, a gathering together of the
fragmented recollections that make up the idea of one's youth.
Written with Saramago's characteristic wit and honesty, Small
Memories traces the formation of an artist fascinated by words and
stories from an early age and who emerged, against all the odds, as
one of the world's most respected writers. By the winner of the
Nobel Prize for Literature.
