War Letters

António Lobo Antunes

Translated by Margaret Jull Costa

‘I’m doing my best to survive all this, but sometimes I feel so homesick that words simply empty of meaning.’

António Lobo Antunes

Antonio Lobo Antunes was born in Lisbon in 1942. His novels include What Can I Do When Everything's On Fire? (2001) and The Inquisitor's Manual (2004). He has also written extensively (in Portuguese) on Lewis Carroll. ‘South of Nowhere’, appearing in Granta 6, was his first work published in English.
