But when a public outcry demands the capture of the 'little criminals,' the fate of these children becomes a poignant, intensely moving drama of love and freedom in a shackled land

Navegação de cabotagem : apontamentos para um livro de memórias que jamais escreverei by Jorge Amado( Book )

Notes pour des Mémoires que le "Zola brésilien", qui a dépassé 80 ans, n'écrira jamais (c'est lui qui l'affirme). Un journal, des souvenirs, sans chronologie, qui couvrent plus d'un demi-siècle. Nombreuses anecdotes; tonique et souvent drôle. On peut regretter avec André Clavel que dans ce "livre-témoin", l'auteur parle trop peu de littérature
