"Old-fashioned stuff, but hard to resist"

O romance de Miguel Sousa Tavares, "Equador", é analisado no Independent de hoje. Parece que o crítico (Daniel Hahn, tradutor de Agualusa, em Inglaterra) gostou do que leu:
The theme is old, but always relevant: the clash of value systems, and the impossibility of forcibly overlaying one society on another. Tavares dresses the atmosphere with detail from discreetly-worn research that populates the novel with real historical figures
(...)The prose is fluent, in Peter Bush's largely invisible translation, and the good story well told. (...) Old-fashioned stuff, but hard to resist.
