Raimund Gregorius teaches classical languages at a Swiss lycée, and lives a life governed by routine. One day, a chance encounter with a Portuguese woman inspires him to question his life - and leads him to an extraordinary book that will open the possibility of changing it. Inspired by the words of Amadeu de Prado, a doctor whose intelligence and magnetism left a mark on everyone who met him and whose principles led him into a confrontation with Salazar's dictatorship, Gregorius boards a train to Lisbon. As Gregorius becomes fascinated with unlocking the mystery of who Prado was, an extraordinary tale unfolds.

    " Whew. This novel is chock full of pithy aphorisms and well-posed questions, both in structure and text, but the bumpy ride through the sentences can get rough. Each character is more of a lens for a set of ideas than a person--but that will probably be o.k. with the reader who is enjoying the ideas. The ideas are fun; the prose is preachy. At one point I was completely enthralled in the dialectics, then the flatness of the characters jabbed at the text like bits of broken glass. Ouch. I was glad to learn a little about Salazar and Portuguese history, but it was too little for me. I guess I would have liked more of a historical context and less existential didacticism. I'm a picky reader. "

    " Die Idee ist eigentlich gut, aber irgendwie ist dieser Roman doch langweilig. Das geht so langsam - betonen auf langsam - voran. "

    " So many amazing thoughts. I just wish I'd had more time and focus so I could fully appreciate the book. "
