Friday, October 27, 2017
OZY -- “The first time I read Blindness, it absolutely blew me away — the voice of it, the euphoric swirling structure, the collision of linguistic beauty and thematic horror, and also his seamless use of surreal elements to explore extremely real, gritty, urgent social themes. As a modern classic, it’s been a potent source of inspiration for writers throughout the globe, including myself.” — Carolina De Robertis teaches Saramago’s work at San Francisco State University. She is an internationally bestselling, award-winning novelist and editor of Radical Hope: Letters of Love and Dissent in Dangerous Times.
