From Library Staff

Nobel laureate Saramago uses a magical realist lens to portray globalization, society and destiny in this picaresque fable. More accessible than much of the writing of this mind-blowingly well-read autodidact and political firebrand.

One day, the entire Iberian Peninsula breaks off from Continental Europe and casts away across the ocean, leaving only 5 people and a dog to survive on the floating island.
