A Voyage to India

"A Voyage to India" is a mental journey as well as a physical one. Written in easily accessible language, which stands in stark contrast to its epic form inspired by The Lusiads, "A Voyage to India" relates the experiences Bloom has on his way to India and back. The greatest gift of the young Portuguese novelist Gonçalo M. Tavares is his ability, as a writer, to reduce the world to fragments and reconstruct it again as if it were his own creation. Each of his books (or set of books) is a kaleidoscope that rearranges reality for us better to observe it, making links explicit and obviating what is superfluous.

Gonçalo M. Tavares burst onto the Portuguese literary scene armed with an utterly original imagination that broke through all the traditional imaginative boundaries. This, combined with a language entirely his own, mingling bold invention and a mastery of the colloquial, means that it would be no exaggeration to say - with no disrespect to the young Portuguese novelists writing today - that there is very much a before Gonçalo M. Tavares and an after.

Tavares is one of the most ambitious writers of this century. His new book is a memorable epiphany.

Alberto Manguel

 

Above all, this book shows the author’s extreme inventiveness and his spirit that defies categorisation: imaginative, audacious, funny, ambitious, logical and crazy. If you haven’t yet discovered the universe of Gonçalo M. Tavares, it’s high time you did.
