"The Lives of Things" collects Jose Saramago's early experiments with the short story form, attesting to the young novelist's imaginative power and incomparable skill in elaborating the most extravagant fantasies. Combining bitter satire, outrageous parody and Kafkaesque hallucinations, these stories explore the horror and repression that paralyzed Portugal during the harsh regime of Salazar and pay tribute to human resilience in the face of injustice and institutionalized tyranny.
