Product description

Review

"Fernando Pessoa is probably the greatest 20th century writer you have never heard of." -- Lindsay Waters, Los Angeles Times, 10 January 1999

"How best to encompass a book quite as strange and fragmented as The Book of Disquiet?" -- Michael Glover, The Independent on Sunday, 20 May 2001

"In a time that which celebrates fame, success, stupidity, convenience and noise, here is the perfect antidote..." -- John Lanchester, The Daily Telegraph, 12 May 2001

"The translation is at once penetrating and delicately observant of Pessoa's astute melancholy." -- George Steiner, The Observer, date unknown

"a haunting mosaic of dreams, psychological notations, autobiographical vignettes, shards of literary theory and criticism and maxims." -- George Steiner, The Observer, 3 June 2001

'. . . readers of Zenith's edition will find it supersedes all others in its delicacy of style, rigorous scholarship...' -- John Gray, New Statesman, 28 May 2001

'...has done an heroic job in producing the best English-language version we are likely to see for a long time, if ever.' -- Nicholas Lezard, The Guardian, 9 June 2001

'I love this strange work of fiction and I love the inventive, hard-drinking, modest man who wrote it in obscurity.' -- Paul Bailey, The Independent, 22 June 2001 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Fernando Pessoa (1888-1935) was born in Lisbon and brought up in Durban, South Africa. He returned to Lisbon in 1905. A prolific writer, ascribing his work to a variety of personas or heteronyms, Pessoa published little in his lifetime and supported himself by working as a commercial translator. Although acknowledged as an intellectual and a poet, his literary genius went largely unrecognised until after his death. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
