Joao Guimaraes Rosa (1908-1967) - one of the most acclaimed Brazilian writers of the 20th Century - explored the twisting frontiers that lie between qwhite manq 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.Mom-cat licks and licks, talks to a#39;em, jagajawjaw, strokes a#39;em, looks after a#39;em. ... Ita#39;s only suassurana that screws up, runs off, abandons her young to whoever wants a#39;em... a#39;Eh ... Tiaguin and Missiano tied up the younger man, and the old man slit his throat with a machete, caught the blood in a basin. ... a#39;That Masa#39;r Johnny Guede, had the fat young missy for a daughter, worst man around: he put me here.
