The Year of the Death of Ricardo Reis (Harvest in Translation)

by

The Year of the Death of Ricardo Reis (Harvest in Translation) Cover

 

Staff Pick

"The great difference between poets and madmen is the destiny of the madness that possesses them" — thus muses Ricardo Reis in this captivatingly dense yet engagingly accessible stream-of-consciousness novel. I would recommend this book to anyone, but poets and those with an avid interest in Jungian psychology would be remiss in passing this one up.
