      • António Lobo Antunes

        At the age of seven, Ant nio Lobo Antunes decided to be a writer but when he was 16, his father sent him to medical school he is a psychiatrist During this time he never stopped writing.By the end of his education he had to join the Army, to take part in the war in Angola, from 1970 to 1973 It was there, in a military hospital, that he gained interest for the subjects of death and the other The Angolan war for independence later became subject to many of his novels He worked many months in Germany and Belgium.In 1979, Lobo Antunes published his first novel Mem ria de Elefante Elephant s Memory , where he told the story of his separation Due to the success of his first novel, Lobo Antunes decided to devote his evenings to writing He has been practicing psychiatry all the time, though, mainly at the outpatient s unit at the Hospital Miguel Bombarda of Lisbon.His style is considered to be very dense, heavily influenced by William Faulkner, James Joyce and Louis Ferdinand C line.He has an extensive work, translated into several languages Among the many awards he has received so far, in 2007 he received the Cam es Award, the most prestigious Portuguese literary award.


    1. "Two years ago Lobo Antunes pissed people off by making the unarguable statement that by the time he was 40, about the age the 2001 crowd is now, he had already published Fado Alexandrino, one of the greatest novels of the 20th century, and they had nothing of identical power to show for. It’s easier to prove 2 and 2 equals 5 than refuting that statement. They’re not even trying: instant success and hyperbolic adulation has curbed their development." --Miguel, theuntranslated.wordpress

    2. Not an easy read. I found myself struggling to distinguish the characters, locations and times because much of the narrative is stream of consciousness and not everyone is given a name. However the language is so evocative, and quite extraordinarily well translated, that I was moved and thrilled with sensations created by a large number of passages throughout the book. This is a book I will mark down to read again as I am sure that with re-reading the plot and characters will become clearer and [...]

    3. Over the course of one long, long night five military men who fought in the Portuguese Colonial Wars get blasted and tell their life stories from "before the revolution," "during the revolution," and "after the revolution." Each chapter centers on one of the particular characters--the lowly foot soldier, the lieutenant colonel who returns from the colonies to find out his wife has died, the communist supporting communications officer, the second lieutenant whose rich wife leaves him for another [...]

    4. This was a challenging and very difficult book to understand and read. Written in a stream of consciousness with little punctuation and with voices switching mid sentence I needed infinite time and patience to try and understand what the author was telling the reader. the translation was excellent but because of the dense writing, few paragraphs and the narrative voices continually changing I felt I never got to know the characters sufficiently well to begin to understand the story. I know littl [...]

    5. Há uns dias atrás, ouvi uma entrevista antiga do Gonçalo M. Tavares em que ele dizia querer evitar as "palavras casadas à nascença". Ficou-me na cabeça a expressão e quando voltei ao gigantesco tomo que é o Fado Alexandrino, percebi o quão bem encaixava este querer na obra do Lobo Antunes.Li livros do Lobo Antunes contempôraneo e agora estou a fazer uma leitura cronológica, tendo começado no primeiro e assim em diante. Fado Alexandrino parece-me uma obra de transição entre as duas [...]

    6. As other readers have said, this is NOT an easy book to read due to the stream of consciousness, the characters not being given names (described by military rank) - very slow reading. But worth it I thought. Five men are having a reunion on the 10th anniversary of their return from Mozambique having served in the Portugese army at the very end of the occupation of Mozambique, returning home just before the overthrow of the Portugese dictatorship. It helps to know at least a little of mid-20th Ce [...]

    7. The novel is about five Portuguese soldiers returning from the civil war which took place in Angola in the 70’s. As they sit around a table all five discuss the madness of war and eventually commit an murder which affects the town they live in as well and works as a sort of wake up call.Fado Alexandrino displays war in all its cartoon insanity, there are passages stuffed with sex, violence and corruption, crossed with complex emotions and anecdotes. The author himself was part of this conflict [...]

    8. literature as tapestryDrowning in words that crash, rumble, streak past, drip down through the cracks in the ceiling, swell up from the pages and invade my brain, stumble, drop, fall, plunge from every page, topple my usual sense of books, I made it through FADO ALEXANDRINO to the very end, sometimes wondering why I was subjecting myself to such a difficult novel, sometimes rejoicing that I'd heard of it by chance many years ago. Lobo Antunes, whose other works I didn't know, has written a nearl [...]

    9. If you like the stream-of-consciousness style of writing, you will love this. It has very vivid similes and metaphors and, unlike Beckett, I could actually make sense of it. Unfortunately, I don't like stream-of-consciousness writing, and so this was extremely painful for me. Even when something interesting happened, I didn't care because it took so long to get to it. But, if you like a slow, tedious narrative, give it a shot.

    10. Not an easy book to read but worth the time and energy spent. Lobo Antunes is a demanding author, especially in this book, which is one of his least accessible, but every page or so you come upon a sentence or phrase so extraordinary, you have to stop and savor it (and usually write it down). I didn't enjoy it as fully as I did his The Land at the End of the World, which I would say is his masterpiece, and I even skipped a few chapters near the end of the book, but if you like this author, it's [...]

    11. Man man man ik ben er in begonnen , maar als een halve bladzijde 1 zin is En het over de regen gaat , dit kan tof zijn . Maar de samenstelling klopte niet .Zo ging heel het boek door . Deze schrijver kan mij niet bekoren !

    12. heel moeilijk geschreven en moeilijk leesbaar en te verstaan. Alle verhaallijnen lopen door mekaar in ellenlange zinnen.

    13. May be a good book, but not my cup of tea: The stream-of-consciousness style made it incredibly difficult to follow what was going on and I gave up not even 100 pages in.
