About the Author

One of the leading intellectuals of the Generation of 1870, José Maria de Eça de Queirós (1845-1900) wrote twenty books, founded literary reviews, and for most of his life also worked as a diplomat, in Havana, London, and Paris.
Margaret Jull Costa, who has translated José Saramago and Machado de Assis, lives in England.
