José Saramago, 1922-2010

José Saramago, Nobel-prize winning Portuguese author of The Year of the Death of Ricardo Reis and Blindness, passed away today at his home in the Canary Islands at the age of 87.

Samargo has been on my to-read list for a while now, but after watching Blindness (the movie) a couple of years ago, the book was put on the backburner for a while.  Have any of you read any of Samargo’s work?
