This collection of 14 essays provides a fascinating and wide-ranging survey of major writers of fiction from Portugal, Brazil and Lusophone Africa. The book brings together a substantial body of work on the Lusophone novel by scholars working in Great Britain, Portugal and Brazil. It discusses the relationship between autobiography and fiction in the work of the Portuguese writer Camilo, the connection between narration and nation-building in the Angolan novels of Pepetela and popular culture in the novels of Brazilian writer Jorge Amado. The focus of the book is particularly appropriate for a collection of essays on the distinguished Portuguese writer, Alexandre Pinheiro Torres, poet, essayist and above all novelist, who is widely recognized as one of the most important living Portuguese authors.
