The republic of dreams : a novel by Nélida Piñon( Book )

67 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 916 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is another multigenerational Latin American saga, this time about immigrants from Spanish Galicia to Brazil. Paterfamilias Madruga has made good, acquiring showy objects of wealth as fast as he amasses his fortune. Now that his wife Eulalia is dying, he takes stock of the family they have produced and finds them amorphous, spineless creatures who leave him cold--except for granddaughter Breta, who accompanies him on a trip back to Spain and who agrees to write a book about the family's ordeal of emigration. In their transplantation from lush and green Galicia to the desolate urban shores of Brazil, something vital has been lost, and a deep longing for the past and for the Old World permeates the book. The writing itself is characterized by the use of elliptical sentences, otherwise called fragments. For Latin American enthusiasts. --Jack Shreve, Library Journal
Voices of the desert : a novel by Nélida Piñon( Book )

32 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 545 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Every evening, in an amorous battle devoid of love, Scheherazade succumbs to the Caliph's advances, and every night, with the help of her devoted sister Dinazarda and her loyal slave Jasmine, she entices the Caliph with her storytelling, unfurling accounts from the desert, the tundra, the bazaar, the goldendomed mosques. Scheherazade gives herself entirely to her characters, speaking as both man and woman, capturing the call of the muezzin, the speech of the caravans, the voices of the scattered tribes from the Red Sea to Damascus. The Caliph, unable to sate his curiosity, prolongs her life each day, desperate to hear how her stories will end. As Scheherazade brings him the tales of his people, he begins to question his cruel mandate and his own hardened heart, until, finally, Scheherazade discovers how to live out her story in a way that not even she could have imagined

"On the eve of the World Cup final of 1970, Caetana, a decadent circus actress, returns to the small town of Trinity after twenty years. On her return, she finds Polidoro, a wealthy farmer who was her lover and who left without giving her satisfaction. For the long-awaited reunion, he prepares the same hotel room and with the participation of the prostitutes in the village a recital of works in local theater, where his beloved finally finds the glory she dreamed of for many years. With elaborate language, Nélida makes an analysis of the situation in Brazil at that time, when people were full of options but many people suffered under the Médici dictatorship. An engaging narrative full of references which encourages, amuses and entertains the reader."--Cataloger's translation
