O que Vem a Ser Isto?

What’s this? What is this object the reader is holding? Where did it came from and where is it headed? Who made it, and why? This book’s protagonist will tell you everything about himself, who his ancestors were, and who is part of his world. From China to Egypt, from forests to factories, no one will want to miss a story like this one. It is essential reading for those who love books — and a perfect one for those who don’t love them as much to start doing so.

Viver da Morte

There are more than a thousand funeral homes in Portugal and the dismal trade employs 6.000 people, but hardly anyone knows how this industry works.
