I've read several of this Portuguese's author's book...Many are set in Portugal...anyone know some of the places in his literature or are they pure fantasy. I'm sure many of the places actually exist. I've been to Lisbon several times, but never long enough to really absorb it.
My family is from the Northern part of Portugal, 30 minutes south of Oporto.
I practice architecture in New Jersey. My website is http://www.frankcunha.com
p.s. If you are interested in Portuguese culture I suggest you try reading some this author's work, it's quite intense, metaphysical, and spatial. His writing transcends words, similar to
how an architect tries to transcend space.
