A Writer from Beyond the Sea

José Eduardo Agualusa

José Eduardo Agualusa was born in Angola, has lived in Brazil and currently calls Lisbon his home. He is one of the authors that have consistently promoted a cultural exchange among Portuguese-speaking countries, doing so in his fiction books as well. Here's an interview [in Portuguese] with Jornal O Povo, in which he talks about how Brazil and Africa have become closer in the past few years and how literature bridges geographical distances.
