José Saramago

Portugese novelist José Saramago died today.  Many things about him were deplorable — he was a communist, an atheist, and (consequently?) a pessimist.  But his book Blindness is one of the best novels I’ve read for the selfsame purpose of losing yourself in a novel.

So it goes, José; may you finally find peace.
