The taker, and other stories by Rubem Fonseca( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: "The Taker and Other Stories is Rubem Fonseca's first collection to appear in English translation, and it ranges across his oeuvre, exploring the sights and sounds of the modern landscape of Rio de Janeiro. Fonseca's Rio is a city at war, a city whose disparities-in wealth, social standing, and prestige-are untenable. In the stories of The Taker, rich and poor live in an uneasy equilibrium, where only overwhelming force can maintain order, and violence and deception are essential tools of survival." Whether recounting the story of a businessman who runs over pedestrians to let off steam, a serial killer being pushed to ever greater crimes by his bourgeois lover, the desperate poor rushing to butcher a cow that has been killed in a traffic accident, or a man seeking out confirmation for a past that his friends deny, Fonseca repeatedly reaffirms his status as one of the purest storytellers on the contemporary Brazilian literary scene

O buraco na parede : contos by Rubem Fonseca( Book )

17 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Em O buraco na parede, publicado em 1995, Rubem Fonseca surge como um criador de vidas humanas -- algumas à beira de fenecer, outras prestes a assassinar. Aqui, ao depurar ainda mais seu estilo cru e conciso, uma simples palavra ou linha de diálogo pode descortinar, com ironia e lirismo, o que há de mais abjeto na alma dos personagens em suas jornadas ao inferno dos submundos urbanos. São oito contos nos quais o autor utiliza com destreza os mais diversos artifícios literários -- monólogo interior ("Orgulho"), metalinguagem ("Artes e ofícios"), farsa ("Idiotas que falam outra língua"), naturalismo ("A carne e os ossos") -- para dissecar os elementos essenciais à nossa existência: nascimento, cópula e morte, muitas vezes unidos num único ato. Motivações e obstáculos se confundem: um balão de dez toneladas, o retrato da mãe, alguns parafusos na perna, um ghost-writer, uma doença, um feto em uma caixa de isopor, um furo na meia... um buraco na parede
