Praise for Now and at the Hour of Our Death

'I was internally rearranged by “Now and at the Hour of Our Death,” a piece of lyric reportage by a Portuguese journalist, Susana Moreira Marques. It’s an account of hospice care in a rural region of Portugal, but it’s also a long poem built of morphine and gauze and ragged breathing and roadside crosses. Its glimpses splintered into me and have not left.’ Leslie Jamison, The New York Times

‘Now and at the Hour of our Death is written with great compassion, and with the economy and precision usually reserved for poetry.’, Gavin Francis, Author of Adventures in Human Being

‘Death isn't good or bad, death is; and Susana Moreira Marques writes about it in her first book in a way that can only be done by great writers.’ Isabel Lucas, Público
