Ze Tavares stands by the door of his empty bookstore after handing the landlord the keys in Lisbon, Monday, April 8, 2013. The lively neighborhood bookstore close to Lisbon's bullring hosted hundreds of book signings, poetry readings and art exhibitions in recent years. Last month, after it shut down, the owners posted a bitterly-worded sign in the window of the empty shop. It had to close, the sign said, because of the savage impoverishment and vertiginous drop in purchasing power witnessed in Portugal, which had brought a brutal fall in the store's revenue.
