The murmuring coast by Lídia Jorge( Book )

67 editions published between 1988 and 2008 in 8 languages and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This captivating tale is told in two parts. The first presents Lidia Jorge's version of a traditional story about a series of supposed incidents set in Beira, Mozambique. The events take place in the final years of Portugal's colonial African wars as an undisclosed narrator describes the military wedding of a young Portuguese ensign and an equally young bride. The wedding is followed by the mass poisoning of hundreds of native Africans and the arrival of a rain of locusts. The story ends grimly with the groom's suicide. Evita Lopo, the unnamed bride from the first part, narrates the remainder of the story. Twenty years have gone by and she reviews the past and questions the unidentified narrator's rendering of events in the first section. Evita's reminiscences destroy the credibility of the earlier story, and she supplies the reader with a great deal of information that the author of the previous account had suppressed or to which he or she merely alluded. It becomes apparent that betrayal and guilt have motivated all of the characters' actions

Mas há noites em que o marido não chega às sete, nem às oito, nem às nove. E se não chegar às dez, ela sabe que não chegará senão de madrugada. É por isso que a hora crucial da vida da porteira acontece entre as cinco e as sete.É dentro desses minutos decisivos da tarde que se dita o dia e a noite da porteira. A porteira aos cinco para as cinco acende a vela, põe as mãos pedindo que ele chegue antes do jantar. Uma maçada se ele só vier de madrugada.Já ela o ouve tocar, depois de subir, abrir a porta do elevador com dificuldade, sair de lá lentamente com o pé rígido, e depois a chave começa a cair junto da porta, sente levantá-la do chão, deve estar a revolver a chave, até que por fim ele a enfia, a roda, a desprende, a saca, fica dentro de casa e a casa se enche do seu hálito até às bacias e às janelas. Tropeça no sofá da saleta e chama: Lúcia! Ó Lúcia!
