Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Tom Cousineau's An Unwritten Novel is a fine study of Pessoa's Book of Disquiet--the first of its kind in any language, so far as I know. Cousineau does an excellent job of identifying and unraveling key strands in Pessoa's work, which he then reweaves in various patterns to illuminate Fernando Pessoa, his semi-autobiographical persona Bernardo Soares, and their collaborative project(ion) of Disquiet. An Unwritten Novel, well-written and well-argued, is an important contribution to Pessoa studies that will be much appreciated by Pessoa scholars and by anyone who admires the work of Portugal's great Modernist writer."--Richard Zenith
