Announcing the Eça de Queiroz Month

This quick post is just to let my readers know that next month starts my Eça de Queiroz Month. That's the whole month of June devoted to Portugal's greatest novelist. St. Orberose's recent ghost town tranquility is about to suffer an upheaval. Expect oodles of biographical data, reviews of books not available in English, and countless excerpts from his letters and journalism. By the end of next month you'll be knowing Eça better than all the high school kids who never made it past page 324 of The Maias. It's going to be fun.


  1. Finally, something decent to read on the internet.

    1. If you think that about this post, then wait until you read the one about how Eça brought down a government.
