4 editions published between 1985 and 2013 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Welcome to São Paulo, Brazil, in the not too distant future. Water is scarce, garbage clogs the city, movement is restricted, and the System--sinister, omnipotent, secret--rules its subjects every moment and thought. Here, middle-aged Souza lives a meaningless life in a world where the future is doomed and all memory of the past is forbidden. A classic novel of 'dystopia, ' looking back to Orwell's 1984 and forward to Terry Gilliam's Brazil, And Still the Earth stands with Loyola Brandão's Zero as one of the author's greatest, and darkest, achievements"--Page 4 of cover

Anonymous celebrity by Ignácio de Loyola Brandão ( Book )
4 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Equal parts Nabokov, All About Eve, and Big Brother, this is a bawdy, irreverent indictment of our self-absorbed culture of celebrity. Where to be anything less than famous means being something less than human."--BOOK JACKET
Teeth under the sun by Ignácio de Loyola Brandão ( Book )
3 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A modern-day Don Quixote and an exile in his own hometown, the protagonist of Teeth Under the Sun is kept from writing by a conspiracy (real? imagined?) designed to prevent him from revealing the truth about the town's strange status quo and violent past. In a place where people have abandoned their houses for tiny apartments in the confines of new high-rises, the narrator walks the almost empty streets, remembering better times and meeting figures from his past: his ex-wife, his son, writers, friends, and revolutionaries. And all of this is interspersed with his memories of the movies. Fact and fiction, past and present, all meet in this story of the narrator's attempts to engage more fully with a modern world forcing him into isolation."--BOOK JACKET
Não verás país nenhum : memorial descriptivo by Ignácio de Loyola Brandão ( Book )
32 editions published between 1981 and 2011 in Portuguese and Spanish and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Ele fala do futuro que já está acontecendo. Romance policial, de aventuras, de amor. Ficção cientifica, documento sobre o meio ambiente. Um livro novo, inclassificável, daqueles raros que nos entretém e fazem pensar. De ação, reflexão, suspense (o que vai acontecer conosco?), amor (Elisa, mulher livre, é a nova forma de amor?), de questionamentos (Adelaide será a nova mulher?), de esperanças (Souza simboliza o último homem indignado contra a destruição de nós mesmos?). Leve humor e ironia profunda permeiam este livro em meio a uma atmosfera sufocante. Este pode ser um romance ecológico ou um grande livro de aventuras, pode ser a história do futuro ou uma história de amor. Toda a vegetação destruída, fauna extinta, comida química. Sirenes, lixo, uma grande metrópole superpovoada onde os habitantes não têm liberdade de locomoção, e, em meio ao caos, lutam para sobreviver. Esse cenaærio construído por Loyola coloca o leitor diante das possíveis conseqüências que repetidas agressões ambientais trariam ao planeta. Forte e envolvente, o livro é um estímulo à discussão de questões de primeira ordem, que vão do socioeconômico ao ecológico. A narrativa é marcada por um ritmo de filme de terror e ação, repleta de sutilezas e ironias"--Cover
