By António Lobo Antunes

António Lobo Antunes, implacável, dá-nos a conhecer uma família e os que em seu torno gravitam, num retrato árido e merciless, que leva o leitor, pelo menos, a repensar as relações entre os homens num Portugal prestes a entrar no século XX. Uma Lisboa marginal, decadende, que acolhe um pequeno universo com personagens que giram em torno da sua própria solidão e isolamento. Um pai ingénuo que acredita que Gardel não morreu naquele acidente aéreo, e uma tia obstinada dirigem-se a um health center para velar um jovem heroínomano em estado de coma.
