Available portuguese translation of the last novel by Robert Menasse
The portuguese translation of the last novel by the Austrian Robert Menasse, The Capital, with a translation by Paulo Rêgo, has been published in the D. Quixote Publishing House. The original was published by Suhrkamp in 2017.
Everything is happening in Brussels, in the European institutions, where a pig is roaming the streets that everyone sees. The main characters relate to the bureaucratic European Union. As Isabel Lucas says (Público-Ípsilon, 8/2, p.5) “is a satire with an unresolved crime. It’s a provocation and an essay exercise.” In a script full of irony we are taken to the fictional center of Europe that is very close to the real Brussels, EU capital, and the role that culture plays in the Institution.
