COMPLIMENTARY STORIES BY OUR AUTHORS

SEA OF MUD, BY LULA FALCĀO

Photo: Gabriela Bilo / Estadao

Sea of Mud is fresh off the press from Lula Falcão’s collection of short stories in Portuguese. In this first-ever English translation, we experience a different tone to Falcão’s writing that speaks to the political, environmental and existential landscape of today’s Brazil: man-made disasters, urban alienation, complex and insidious political schemes. In  Mar de Lama, we find ourselves in the Anthropocene landscape with its strange gravitational forces and unfamiliar natural phenomena, new laws of physics. Nevertheless, this is a love story that honors the language of Brazil’s Cinema Novo which the author is more than familiar with.

Translation: Helena Cavendish de Moura with special thanks to Andrew Michael Brown

“There was never a moment when we met or introduced ourselves; we just knew each other and treated each other with respect.  I was, after all, his future wife; well, I presumed I was. “

The public supports it and that’s all that matters, the new President announced to a press corps readied for the spectacle. Corporate sponsors include a cosmetics company and a bank.”
