Rather than portraying Joseph as a mere carpenter, Jose Saramago recreates the man as a fascinating and complex character, tormented by guilt and remorse for electing to save his child over alerting the population of Herods intentions. The novel that shocked the Catholic world presents a mundane vision of the events surrounding Jesus of Nazareth, from his birth and the discovery of love to his existential crisis on the meaning and role of his life
Author Bio
Jose Saramago
Born into a poor family in Azinhaga, near Lisbon, Saramago was raised in the capital city. He studied at the university part-time, supporting himself as a metalworker. His first novel, TERRA DE PECCADO (Country of sin, 1947) was not a success, but its publication enabled Saramago to leave his job and join the staff of a Portuguese literary magazine. A Communist who outspokenly opposed the right-wing dictatorship of Antonio Salazar, Saramago wrote and published journalism, travel books, and poetry, writing fiction again only in 1974 when the Salazar regime fell after a military uprising. He was awarded the 1998 Nobel Prize in literature for "parables sustained by imagination, compassion and irony."
