"'In a time which celebrates fame, success, stupidity, convenience and noise, here is the perfect antidote' John Lanchester, Daily Telegraph 'A meandering, melancholic series of reveries and meditations. Pessoa's amazing personality is as beguiling and mysterious as his unique poetic output' William Boyd 'Disturbs from beginning to end... There is a distinguished mind at work beneath the totally acceptable dullness of clerking. The mind is that of Pessoa. We must be given the chance to learn more about him' Anthony Burgess, Observer"
