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

78 editions published between 1984 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 917 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 512 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 golden-domed 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

32 editions published between 1987 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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

Filhos da América by Nélida Piñon( Book )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2017 in Portuguese and Spanish and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A unique, intimate and revealing book that portrays the thoughts of the Brazilian writer, winner of the Prince of Asturias Award. The Epic of the Heart shows us the author's vibrant interest in--and deep knowledge of--Latin American literary translation, as well as her teachers and admired writers, like García Márquez. But in this book, Piñon also tackles an entire continent of issues, ideas, affections, passions, and obsessions. Always through literature, the writer tackles our current lax morality, defending the fundamental place of cultures that modern times have tried to suffocate and thus celebrating their resistance. "They are what lead me to roam the world with my imagination."
