Pereira Declares: A Testimony by Antonio Tabucchi

"One of the most intriguing and appealing character studies in recent European fiction, and easily the best work of Tabucchi's to have appeared in English translation."—Kirkus Reviews
Dr. Pereira is an aging, overweight journalist who has failed to notice the menacing cloud of fascism over Salazarist Portugal, until one day he meets an aspiring young writer and anti-fascist. Breaking out of his apolitical torpor, Pereira reluctantly rises to heroism.

About the Author

Antonio Tabucchiwas born in Pisa in 1943 and died in Lisbon, his adopted home, in 2012. Over the course of his career he won France’s Médicis Prize for Indian Nocturne, the Italian PEN Prize for Requiem, and the Aristeion Prize for Pereira Maintains. A staunch critic of the former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi, he once said that “democracy isn’t a state of perfection, it has to be improved, and that means constant vigilance.”

PATRICK CREAGH (1930–2012) was a British poet and translator.
