“A Ionesco of the Tropics.” That is how a scholar recently described the daring work of Lula Falcão whose biting narrative pushes stylistic boundaries, reorganizes established norms in physics, throwing Brazil into a chaos theory once never imaginable. Until now. Is tragedy really a form of comedy? Or vice-versa? Is reality a form of dystopia? This collection of stories is a masterful introduction to the modern Brazil, a nation recently disgraced by a recalcitrant fascistic ideology that tries to ingratiate itself with foreign superpowers at the risk of becoming a laughing stock. Is it funny? Yes it is, and Falcão’s sarcasm allows us some sense of normalcy.
