Saramago, Jose
O Evangelho Segundo Jesus Cristo. [The Gospel According To Jesus Christ].
Lisboa: Caminho, 1991. First Portuguese edition and true first of the Nobel Prize-winning author's classic work. Octavo, original wrappers as issued. Signed by Jose Saramago on the title page. In near fine condition, with the original publisher's bookmark laid in. A fictional re-telling of Jesus Christ's life, depicting him as a flawed, humanized character with passions and doubts. The novel proved controversial, especially among the Roman Catholic Church, accusing Saramago of having a "substantially anti-religious vision". It was praised by other critics as a "deeply philosophical, provocative and compelling work" (Bob Corbett). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
