The Painter of Birds book. Lídia Jorge, Margaret Jull Costa (Translation). Desconhecer o trabalho de Lídia Jorge fez-me reflectir sobre a enormidade de autores e de literatura portuguesa que ainda tenho para conhecer. Estive para me cruzar com ela no café, mas nunca calhou. Calhou antes cruzar-me com a sua escrita neste 'O Vale da Paixão' e apaixonar-me pela mágoa, pela apatia, pela inevitabilidade das coisas.

The story of a daughter's longing for her absent father and her determination to piece together the past and the futureThe setting of this extraordinary novel is an old farmhouse in Portugal-a house far enough from the Atlantic not to hear the breaking waves during a storm but near enough for the walls to be corroded by the salt in the air.With most members of her large family having left the hardship of life in this landscape of sand and stone for jobs in faraway places, a young woman struggles to piece together her past from the widely varying stories she's been told. Left behind by a free-spirited, feckless father, a seducer with a rare gift for drawing, she is raised by her uncle who has married her mother. The only memories of her father's two brief visits are the echoes of his footsteps on the stairs leading to her room. The only signs of him are letters from the widest reaches of the world-letters accompanied by brilliantly colored drawings of exotic birds. The daughter longs for her father and, as she grows up, she is determined to find him and uncover the truth.Brimming with astute and exquisite characterizations, this strikingly lyrical novel evokes the atmosphere of rural Portugal in a changing world and explores the timeless themes of family, independence, and the often painful experience of emigration.
Reviews about The Painter of Birds (2):
Dagdatus
I don't get it. Francisco Dias, the father, works his big farm in Portugal with the help of his many sons. He drives them out of bed at 4 in the morning and there they are, shovelling manure. Only the youngest, Walter, refuses. He won't shovel. And he gets away with it. Walter and his teenage daughter are the main characters of this book. She pines for her father, whom she has rarely ever seen. He keeps circling the globe, sending letters with beautifully drawn birds in them. Everybody wonders why he draws these birds. And everybody talks about his army blanket that he uses to sleep on, either alone or with female company. Everybody is shocked about this. But when his daughter grows up and spends her nights around town, nary an eyebrow is raised. Everybody has either beautiful or bad thoughts, and the landscape is poetic, too. This has nothing to do with a Portuguese dirt farmer. Nor with a normal human condition.
I just don't get it.

Lidia Jorge was born in Algarve, which has now become like the French Riviera, invaded by tourism. Yet her childhood was formed and informed in a different era, of simplicity, symbols and revelations. I had the privilege to visit with her for ONCE SHE WAS A CHILD, my book of encounters with women writers telling the story of childhood in times of upheaval (now a completed manuscript). Before our meeting I read one short story of hers only and found it captivating. I strongly recommend getting hold of every book of hers that finally gets translated. It's the best financial investment as you'll go back to them again and again, as if you bought a thousand books for the price of one! (How many so called "best sellers" qualify as such?)
