A camisa do marido / The husband’s shirt
Short stories and novellas , 2014
The nine stories in A Camisa do Marido show Nélida Piñon at the height of her narrative mastery and evocative, elegant writing.
Nélida describes the fascinating path of the shadows, nooks and crannies of family relationships: brutal confrontations, secret or not, that stalk every home. The boy attracted to his father’s new wife, the scorned child, and the disenchanted old poet are some of the protagonists of these stories that seize and seduce us.
A Camisa do Marido is a delicate pearl by one of Brazil’s most brilliant writers.
