New Nobel Prize in Literature, Abdulrazak Gurnah will be published by Companhia das Letras – 10/14/2021 – Illustrated

Companhia das Letras acquired the rights to publish four novels by Abdulzarak Gurnah, the Tanzanian author who won the Nobel Prize for Literature last week.

Born in Zanzibar, an island in Tanzania, and with a consolidated career in academia and in the British literary scene, Gurnah had never been published in Brazil.

The publications begin with the writer’s most recent book, “Afterlives”, released in the UK last year, which hits Brazilian bookstores next semester.

Three other works considered prominent in his literature were also hired –”Paradise”, from 1994, “By the Sea”, from 2001, and “Desertion”, from 2005. These still do not have a publication date.

The Company also bought, after last year’s Nobel Prize in Literature, a series of books by the American poet Louise Glück, who had never been published in Brazil either. The collection “Poemas 2006-2014” was released in June.
