Saramago likens the past to an immense stony ground and if we pay attention to the details (under the rocks), you never know what you will find. In this novel, Saramago re-tells a story of an elephant's journey from 16th Century Portugal to Vienna. The Elephant's Journey is full of Saramago's trademark wit and whimsy, and gentle but mocking observations of human behavior.
