"Manual of Painting and Calligraphy" was Jose Saramago s first novel. Written eight years before the critically acclaimed "Baltasar and Blimunda," it is a story of self-discovery set against the background of the last years of Salazar s dictatorship. A struggling young artist, commissioned to paint a portrait of an influential industrialist, learns in the process about himself and the world around him. The brilliant juxtaposition of a passionate love story and the crisis of a nation foreshadows all of Saramago s major works. A must-have for any devotee of the great Portuguese bel laureate, "Manual of Painting and Calligraphy" is available in the United States for the first time.
