About Joao G. Rosa

Joao Guimaraes Rosa (1908-1967) - one of the most acclaimed Brazilian writers of the 20th Century - explored the twisting frontiers that lie between 'white man' and Indio, human and animal-kind, city life and the far backwoods, madness and sanity. With constant, startling imaginative leaps and an emotional poetry sometimes of redemption, sometimes of irreparable exclusion, he wrote the secret inner history of modern Brazil. Boulevard is proud to present this brand-new English translation of his finest stories. David Treece heads the Centre for the Study of Brazilian Culture and Society in London and has also translated books by Ana Cristina Cesar, Caio Fernando Abreu and Joao Gilberto Noll for Boulevard's Brazilian Contemporaries Series.
