A Hero for the People: Stories of the Brazilian Backlands

By Arthur Powers (Press 53, 2013)

I loved it. A LOT. This is a collection of stories, each one crafted and fine-tuned. They leave you satisfied and yet wanting more. There’s an adventure and, within that, a deeper theme. You almost get the sense that you’re traveling along through Brazil’s backlands, and that the people there, while delightfully unique, aren’t so different from you. There’s a taste to this book that made me look up Powers’s other work.
