In this book there are 28 stories that seek to understand the human condition in most sensitive and sincere form, mixing reality and fiction.Excerpt from the book:My fullness refers to the least of things. It is a continuous not to understand. This is what for now I can define what it would be like to feel fulfilled, complete, full in all possible ways. I think I can do even more: maybe reaching this point is not possible, and we, poor mortals, delude ourselves into everyday epiphanies, searching for the impossible. No, not so impossible, I can say that today, yes, this afternoon I reached a fullness, a mental rest that made me feel nothing, not thinking about anything, deserving my own silence. Feeling of accomplishment, at the same time knowing that everything around me may not be as I always wanted, but for this moment everything was ready. That's right, I felt ready this afternoon.Excerpt from the preface to the book:'As in the texts of other authors of this early century, one of the marks of these reports is the refusal to fit into crystallized genres. As an attentive reader of the writer Clarice Lispector – who in several texts seems to be present as inspiration, as a resonance or as an inheritance – the author knows that gender cannot “take” these writing exercises, texts that are intended to be in motion. (...) Another point that we must realize when entering this field of fiction by Danilo França is the very delicate way in which the writer manages the words. The descriptions are meticulous, but the most important thing is to understand how the author manages in short narrative spaces to shift our gaze to smaller elements.'Luiz LopesPh.D. in Literary StudiesAbout the authorDanilo França is a teacher, researcher and artist.
