Summary
Raimundo Silva is a middle-aged, celibate clerk, proofing manuscripts for a respectable publishing house. Fluent in Portuguese, he has been assigned to work on a standard history of the country, and the twelfth-century king who laid siege to Lisbon. In a moment of subversive daring, Raimundo decides to change just one single word of text-a capricious revision that completely undoes the past. When discovered, his insolent disregard for facts appalls his employers-save for his new editor, Maria Sara. She suggests that Rainmundo take his transgressions even further. Through Rainmundo and Maria's eyes, what transpires is an alternate view of history and a colorful reinvention of a debatable truth. It's a serpentine journey through time where past and present converge, fact becomes myth, and fiction and reality blur-especially for Rainmundo and Maria themselves, who begin to find themselves erotically drawn to each other
