‘Scott seems to have managed to produce a novel that will survive the test of time, a profound interpretation of our time and our country.’
Praise for Paulo Scott and Nowhere People
‘A powerful, complex and very ambitious voice. In the contemporary Latin American literature scene, Paulo Scott is a must-read.’ Juan Pablo Villalobos
‘Paulo Scott is one of the best novelists of his generation and is going to surprise us in the future.’João Gilberto Noll, interviewed by Posfácio magazine
‘One of Scott’s many merits is the audacity he shows, on many levels. Scott dares to create one of the most interesting voices in recent fiction.’ O Globo
Praise for Nowhere People
‘Immensely powerful. [...] This novel tackles post-dictatorship Brazilian ideologies better than anything else in fiction.’ O Estado de São Paulo
‘A lush postmodern spin on the intergenerational state-of-the-nation saga . . . Daniel Hahn’s translation of this somersaulting, playful, emotionally pummelling and occasionally oblique novel is, one assumes, a feat of ventriloquism and linguistic plate-spinning.’ Booktrust
‘Nowhere People is an inexhaustible font of surprises that the author’s firm hand manages to harmonise.’ Rascunho
‘Nowhere People is not your average book.’ Folha de São Paulo
