The True Actor free pdf

Translated from the Portuguese, the third novel by writer, musician, and playwright Jacinto Lucas Pires, "The True Actor" recounts the story of the grotesque character Americo Abril, an actor confounded by the various roles that he plays in real life--weary dad, blocked artist, henpecked husband, and miserable lover, and in the cinema--where he inhabits the role of his alter-ego, Paul Giamatti. As a backdrop (and in intriguing confluence with current events), Portugal is in a state of high alert.
