Now and at the Hour of Our Death
Susana Moreira Marques launches Now and at the Hour of Our Death in North America.
With her new book, Now and at the Hour of Our Death, Susana Moreira Marques blends poetry and journalism to create a work of reportage like no other. The region of Tras-os-Montes in Portugal is dying. The villages empty as young people go off to look for work, leaving the elderly behind. Part oral history, part philosophical entreaty, part essay, Marques’ hybrid book chronicles a way of life in its final days.
