Books read in September 2022

As you may know, I read a lot, and have been making a note of it since 2014. Reading is one of the many things I love to do. I learn, I dream, I travel… I intend to post monthly about the books I have read. I read a lot in English, but this September all were in Portuguese. Here they are:

  • As entrevistas da Paris Review
    “The Paris Review Interviews” volume I. I love reading interview books, and have even published one. This tome comprises talks had in the mid XXth centuty with some of the world’s greatest writers. I learned a lot from them.
  • A intuição da ilha, de Pilar del Rio
    The title of the book can be loosely translated to “The island intuition”. Writen by Portuguese Nobel winner José Samamago’s widow, Pilar del Rio, the book comprises many episodes about Saramago’s years in Lanzarote, the place he called home once he moved to Spain. If you’re a fan of his, you’ll surely love this book.
  • O perfume das flores à noite, de Leïla Slimani
    On the pretext of spending a night in an Italian museum, Leïla Slimani takes us on a journey of those hours, but of many more memories. This is the second book from her I’ve read, after the master piece “Chanson douce”
  • Aquário, de Capicua
    Capicua is a Portuguese hip hop artist, having a consolidated career in music. In “Aquário” she ventures into essays, and compiled the writings she did over months in a weekly magazine. Topics range from the music industry, to motherhood, to the pandemic. I found hers a refreshing voice.
