PDF eBook Pereira Maintains (New Directions Paperbook) –
Tabucchi’s masterpiece “conjures a state between waking and dreaming” (The New York Occasions)
Dr. Pereira is an growing older, lonely, chubby journalist who has failed to note the menacing cloud of fascism over Salazarist Lisbon. In the future he meets Montiero Rossi, an aspiring younger author whose anti-fascist fervor is as sturdy as Pereira’s apolitical languor. Finally, breaking out of the shell of his personal inhibitions, Pereira reluctantly rises to heroism―and this arc is “one of the vital intriguing and interesting character research in current European fiction” (Kirkus).
