I will start working on individual blogs about Contemporary Portuguese Authors on translation. I am starting by young Jose Luis Peixoto, but I will soon move to other authors. If you have any material and if you feel like sending it (about any author), it will be highly apreciated. To check my recent work on the blog about Peixoto, click HERE.

I'm looking for a book I read a few years ago and all I remember of it is that it's a portugese writer and a contemporary work of fiction. It's set in a small town where the devil is a member of the town and hangs out at the bar. Throughout the course of the story, the heat and dryness becomes somewhat of a character in the manner the writer portrays it and the way in which it affects the towns people. The main story line follows a family, specifically the son of of another another character who we see grow up. I remember the edition i checked out was a hardback with a yellow cover that seems to me had trees on it. The book, if I remember correctly, is sort of in two parts? Anyways, if anyone reads this and knows what book I'm talking about,
please post. This is my favorite book and I would love to
find it again. Thanks.
