Pereira Maintains: Antonio Tabucchi

by Team Riverside

New in Paperback!

This is the best novel by a writer-we’d-never-heard-of that we have come across in ages. Set in Lisbon at the tail end of the Spanish Civil War, it follows the story of Peirera; lonely widower, washed-up journalist, and reluctant participant in the resistance against his beloved country’s increasingly repressive regime. Beautifully written, dead educational and as thrilling as a proper thriller, this is a European masterpiece that deserves a wider audience.
