SYNOPSIS The journalist Isabel Nery brings us in her new book, the first biography of Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen, in the year that marks the centenary of her birth. The author visited places and people that were part of her history, such as Porto, Greece, Lagos, Travessa das Mónicas in Graça, or the small island of Föhr, in the North Sea, where Jan Andresen, her great-grandfather was originally from , or interviewing more than 60 people, from fisherman José Muchacho, to friend Manuel Alegre, to essayist Eduardo Lourenço, passing by companions of letters and politics, family, translators and researchers. Only in this way was it possible to complete the missing biography about the first Portuguese woman to receive the Camões Prize and the only female writer with honors from the National Pantheon, to whom many would like to have been awarded the Nobel Prize.
