The Silence of Water

José Saramago

Manuel Estrada (illustrations)

«... and there I was, with the day fading fast and not a twitch from the cork float to indicate any signs of subaquatic life, when, suddenly, without even having felt the initial exciting tremor that announces a fish trying to nibble the bait, the float plunged down into the depths.»

On the shores of the Tejo river, during a lonely afternoon
of fishing, a child is about to catch the big fish. At the
very moment the boy loses his prey, he gets involved in
a moving adventure that will end with the awakening
of lucidity.

Inspired by a childhood memory, the Portuguese Nobel
Prize winner unfolds a tale of extraordinary beauty
and wisdom in The Silence of Water.

Manuel Estrada, one of the leading contemporary
graphic artists, recreates the profoundness of this
memorable story with striking images.
