Lula Falcão-another Brazilian author on Bolsonaro’s Security list

“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.

Casa Forte Press is delighted to announce its first translation of Lula Falcão’s Vultures in the Living Room, available in all bookstores worldwide and on Kindle in February 2021.

Lula Falcão is a recognized name in the world of culture, journalism, and political activism in Brazil.

Falcão’s writing is unmistakably original. He balances the impossible in storytelling: his prose is atemporal but deeply rooted in Brazil’s recent dark history. It is fiction rooted in physics, Big Bang theory, and the geophysical apocalypse of the Anthropocene era. It is funny at times, slightly absurdist, suffused with irony and biting criticism. Falcão’s Vultures in the Living Room, like Ionesco’s post-war Rhinoceros, is an important reflection on human vulnerability during times of political and social uncertainty.
