Reading period: June 2022 - September 2022

The And Other Stories Portuguese reading group returns in 2022 with three books from across the Lusosphere. From East Timor we have O Plantador de Abóboras [The Pumpkin Planter] by Luís Cardoso, winner of last year’s Oceanos Prize, a novel that explores one woman’s experience of the three major conflicts that shook the country during the 20th century; from Portugal we have Ecologia [Ecology] by Joana Bértholo, imagining a dystopian near-future in which tech companies have found a way to monetize language; and from Brazil we have A pediatra [The Paediatrician] by Andréa del Fuego, an insightful look at human behaviour and the limits that can so easily be crossed by those in a position of power.

How it works

  1. To read the whole book, please order a copy yourself from a shop or library if you can. If you have trouble finding a title, we may be able to lend you a copy. Email info@andotherstories.org to be put in touch with the organiser.
  2. Read the books, then add your thoughts in the comments below.
  3. Join us at a meet-up to discuss what we have read. You can be sure of a lively, well-informed discussion.
