    Set in contemporary Angola, this novel is populated with characters whose victories never quite settle. Like any one of us, they can forget things that have happened to them, and remember things that never did. Theirs is a world where the truth seems to shift from moment to moment, where history itself is up for grabs. Agualusa's slippery narrator takes us on a vivid and enthralling journey across the shifting landscape of memory and history, and - from his unique perspective - reveals a breathtaking love story too.
