Journal Entry 1 by wingSparkishwing from Fleckney, Leicestershire United Kingdom on Monday, January 16, 2023
Born in 1922 in the tiny Portuguese village of Azinhaga, José Saramago was only a baby when his family moved to a series of cramped lodgings in a working-class neighbourhood of Lisbon. Nevertheless, he would return to the village throughout his early life, its river and olive groves seeping deep into his memory.

Shifting between Azinhaga and Lisbon, this touching book is a mosaic of memories. Written with characteristic wit and honesty, Small Memories traces the formation of an artist always fascinated by language and who emerged, against all odds, as one of the world's most respected writers.

Left in the Rose Garden

I found it quite difficult to get into. As the title says Small Memories.. I found it a little disjointed. I returned the book to the rose garden in Stapleford Park.
