As New. Cloth, 8vo, 22 cm, xii, 268 pp. "Given that Pinheiro Torres's most prolific and original output was the field of fiction, it is apt that the essays focus on a range of Portuguese, Brazilian and Portuguese-speaking African writers, including himself, who dissect different tropoi of their own society.
