Spoiled Fruits by Caio Fernando Abreu (forthcoming)
Winner of a 2019 PEN/Heim Translation Fund Grant

“In Bruna Dantas Lobato’s translation, [Spoiled Fruits] passes the microphone to the people on the other side of power: the junkies, failed revolutionaries, beggars, and drag queens who, at times like these, have the most to lose. Told by one of Brazil’s greatest gay writers, this book unfurls in long, elegant sentences, evoking the inner lives of people this society—like so many others—too often prefers to forget.” —PEN America
