The lack of will to translate Brazilian literature has left new voices unheard. This collection hopes to recify that.

Several writers tackle the legacy of their parents' generation in memoir form: the dictatorship in Uruguay in Miguel Del Castillo's "Violeta"; Argentine militancy in Julián Fuks "The Dinner".

There is mischievous conversation between a woman and her male therapist in "Every Tuesday", and Tatiana Salem Levy's sensuous tale of a woman torn between her lover and her love of a city – Rio. AA
