Description

Fiction. Latino/Latina Studies. Translated from the Portuguese by Paloma Martinez-Cruz. The story of a young Afro-Brazilian womans journey from the land of her enslaved ancestors to the emptiness of urban life. However, the generations of creativity, violence and family cannot be so easily left behind as Poncia is heir to a mysterious psychic gift from her grandfather. Does this gift have the power to bring Poncia back from the emotional vacuum and absolute solitude that has overtaken her in the city? Do the elemental forces of earth, air, fire and water mean anything in the barren urban landscape? A mystical story of family, dreams and hope by the most talented chronicler of Afro-Brazilian life writing today.

    Dona Conceição nos leva a história da Ponciá de forma tão íntima que parece sermos da família e sofremos junto com a personagem. Ninguém é de todo bom ou mau. A contextualização da herança escravocrata é pesada e bateu forte em mim. Sinto com ela e com os seus.
    Linda leitura.
