Book Recommendation

The Unknown Islands, Raul Brandao, Tagus Press, originally published 1926.


Writing in the TLS, Bernhard Malkmus calls The Unknown Islands, by Raul Brandao,  a "beautifully crafted account of the social life and natural history of the Azores archipelago" and recommends David Brookshaw's "sensitive and nuanced translation--the first in English."
