Postcards From the World: Brazilian Books

Today I received a Postcrossing postcard from Brazil. The Postcrosser who sent it to me, Marcela, is a college professor in São José do Rio Preto, about 250 miles from Sao Paolo. She loves literature, and asked me on the card if I’ve read any Brazilian authors. (I responded to say I’ve read Paulo Coelho and Jorge Amado, but couldn’t remember offhand any others.) She recommended Machado de Assis, João Guimarães Rosa, Clarice Lispector, and Conceição Evaristo. The card itself isn’t particularly Brazilian, but I think it’s pretty, and the image’s postcard theme is fitting.

Today I received Postcrossing card BR-563962 from Marcela, in Brazil.
