The Anarchist Banker, which starts in the nineteenth century, and the second volume, Professor Pfiglzz and His Strange Companion, present English readers for the first time with a generous sampling of the best classic and new Portuguese writing. This is a European literature only now receiving the attention and acclaim it merits. From Eça de Queirós to Fernando Pessoa and Irene Lisboa, this anthology of stories in fine new translations will extend readers' maps of modern European literature and open windows on the fascinating Portuguese world.
