it was amazing

I loved this dreamy, searching Brazilian graphic novel. Each chapter ends with the death of the narrator, Bras de Oliva Domingos. In this way, the story of a life is told, as if each phase or interlude in his life could have the weight and meaning of being the very last. Did I mention that Bras is an obituary writer? He is the son of a famous writer who grows into his own authority by measuring the weight and meaning of lives lost. Late in life, he realizes this gift of artistry, along with a love for black coffee, is his inheritance. The beautiful watercolors and ink drawings give a sense of immediacy to the each fateful moment in the story of Bras’ life (and many deaths.)
