Happy to report that this "Candide-esque" travelog is a delight. If you are familiar with Nobel winner Saramago's other widely available translated works, you might expect something grim. Not so! The author has much to say about the folly of the wealthy, religion, and government and uses a little known tidbit of history and a lovable elephant to frame his views.
