Dreams of Dreams and the Last Three Days of Fernando Pessoa
Dreams of Dreams and the Last Three Days of Fernando Pessoa
Translated by Nancy J. Peters


A City Lights / Italian Voices Book

"Elaborately imagined...mini-catalog of great artists' dreams and the author's interpretation of the last three days in the life of Portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa. Tabucchi's rich language and his magical-realist charm tinge the volume with a visionary glow." —Publishers Weekly

"A lovely little book that keeps ringing in your head long after you've finished it." —Kirkus Reviews

"There is in Tabucchi's stories the touch of the true magician, who astonishes us by never trying too hard for his subtle, elusive and remarkable effects." —The San Francisco Examiner

"Elegant, cosmopolitan, inventive, and disquieting; his writing is, paradoxically, sensuous and economical." —The Boston Review

Antonio Tabucchi is the author of Indian Nocturne, Pereira Declares, Little Misunderstandings of No Importance, Requiem: A Hallucination, The Edge of the Horizon, Fernando Pessoa (with Maria José Lancastre), Letter from Casablanca, and The Missing Head of Damasceno Monteiro. He edited the Italian edition of Fernando Pessoa's complete works and has translated the poetry of Carlos Drummond de Andrade.

Nancy J. Peters is the former publisher of City Lights Books, co-author of Literary San Francisco and translator of Dreams of Dreams by Antonio Tabucchi.
