"A man knocked on the King's door to ask for a boat. Why the petitioner required a boat, where he was bound for, and who volunteered to crew for him the reader will discover as this short narrative unfolds."

Bought it from a local charity shop, has a lovely dedication inside, must have been a gift to a son from his parents...

I wasn't sure what to expect. It's clearly a satire, funny, poetic and definitely original. I have not read other books by Saramago but will pick some up soon.
