The next book by Itamar Vieira Junior, whose “Torto Arado” reached in the last few months the extraordinary mark of 100 thousand books sold, is naturally a golden bet for its publisher, Todavia.
The house announced, in advertisements in this newspaper two weeks ago, that it scheduled for June the next release of the author, “Doramar ou a Odisseia”, without going into details.
The work will be a storybook, bringing together seven stories already published in “A Oração do Carrasco”, a collection that came out in 2017 by the small Bahian publisher Mondrongo.
The title of the new collection, incidentally, also names one of the stories contained in that book, which was a finalist for the Jabuti. “Torto Arado” won, in addition to the Jabuti for best romance, the Oceanos award.
In addition to these seven short stories, the launch will have two unpublished ones, one already published in a Brazilian periodical and two others already published in Portugal.
In other words, a total of 12 narratives, which tell stories of characters as diverse as immigrants, indigenous people, a woman who works as a domestic worker and the artist Arthur Bispo do Rosário. Vieira Junior, in fact, debuted last Sunday as a columnist for this newspaper.
