It's pretty hard to describe what this book is about, but the title feels quite right: "A fantasy for two coronels and a pool". This is about Lisbon, about Portugal, a view on modern Portuguese society with a bit unusual (or maybe not...) characters.

It felt like I was reading poetry... Mário de Carvalho's writing style makes me feel so cosy even if he's writing about nothing, just because it all feels so familiar :) He is becoming one of my favourite Portuguese writers, and they are not many!

All of this just comes to prove truth the famous sentence from Pessoa "My homeland is the Portuguese language" :)

Emprestado pelo Diogo.
