The widow of Nobel Laureate Jose Saramago said on Monday that the writer’s last volume of his diaries, presented on Monday for the first time, reflected his life in 1998 and the “madness” of winning the Nobel Prize in Literature.

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.
