What if, one day, Europe was to crack along the length of the Pyrenees, separating the Iberian peninsula? In Saramago's lovely fable, the new island is sent spinning, like a great stone raft, towards the Azores. While the authorities panic and tourists and investors flee, three men, two women, and a dog are drawn together by portents that burden them with a bemusing sense of responsibility. Travelling at first packed into a car, then into a wagon, they take to the road to explore the limits of their now finite land, adrift in a world made new by this radical shift in perspective.



"[T]he political reaction to this geological mishap is marvelously amusing - and greatly enhanced by the author's nimble prose and random metaphysical touches." (Publishers Weekly)
"A lovely questing story in a lineage of… Don Quixote and Kipling's Kim…. [The Stone Raft] may be Saramago's finest work." (Los Angeles Times)
