Instead of a Holiday: Brazil
Where shall we go today?
While the world deals with the pandemic, many aspects of our normal lives are on hold. Holidays in 2020 are likely to be difficult or impossible. With than in mind, we’ve put together a series of ‘instead of a holiday’ book lists. These lists contain novels with a sense of atmosphere and setting to imaginatively transport you to places you can’t currently get to, as well as travel and history writing to provide that all-important cultural engagement.
This one takes us to Brazil. Be it learning about the reality of indigenous peoples or delving into a modern classic by Clarice Lispector, you’re sure to encounter complexity and contrast wherever you go.
