Living Figueira 12 months a year

Beautiful as a Carnation

The writer Clementina Rosa Matos will be in Figueira da Foz on this date to launch her work “Linda como um Cravo”, winner of the Teixeira Gomes Literary Prize 2022. The session features a presentation by Figueiran entrepreneur Ana Machado.

From the synopsis: “In a remote village lives a woman who does not know freedom. Surrounded by space and nature, she finds herself imprisoned in solitude, trapped in a failed marriage to an alcoholic craftsman. By a happy chance, a car is lost in the mountains, and she meets her confidante. This book is the story that reveals the adventure and tragedy of this woman, insignificant and great, called Maria das Dores.”
