Could you message me your postal address? I will pass it on to HarperCollins India and get them to mail you a copy. It's really difficult to pick a favorite Saramago. It would come down to a deathmatch between 'All the Names' and 'Blindness'. But they're such different books - the former is so intimate and personal, while the second is expansive and ambitious...(less)

More of Vikram's books…
“Health itself appeared so bleak a state that sickness and death wrung little pity from him any more. Sometimes, when a patient’s final breaths seemed no more than the last turns of a wheel, leaving behind an object to be removed, charred, turned to ash, and stirred into a riverbed, his indifference terrified even him.”
Vikram Paralkar, Night Theater

“Todos creemos que la iluminación nos dará placer. Pero ninguno se atreve a mirar directamente el sol del mediodía.”
Vikram Paralkar, Las Aflicciones

“The lack of gods in the clinic troubled her, though. In a place that people visited for fear of death there needed to be some source of hope.”
Vikram Paralkar, Night Theater
