Summary (From the publisher):

A once powerful state minister and a personal friend of the Portuguese dictator Salazar has been incapacitated by a stroke and lies completely dependent on his nursing-home bed. Angry at being passed over as Salazar's successor, and ashamed of his current position, Senhor Francisco can't free himself of his conscious or consciousness, and slowly slides into madness. Through the eyes of his daughter, mistress, housekeeper, and first wife, we witness the damage tyranny does to every layer of society.
