The diary reflects on “trips, conferences, meetings, concerns, anxiety, and the madness of the Nobel prize,” Pilar del Río told journalists at the book launch.
The last volume of the Lanzarote Diaries was launched in Coimbra to celebrate 20 years since Saramago won the Nobel Prize.
Porto Editora also presented the book “A country excited in joy,” by Ricardo Viel, which recalls “details and surprises” of how Saramago and the country experienced the day he won the prize, the event’s organisers said.
