Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Rodrigo de Souza Leão is an exceptional author and has had a major impact on contemporary Brazilian literature."—Paulo Scott

All Dogs are Blue is a scurrilously funny tale of life in a Rio insane asylum. Its raw style and comic inventiveness signal a major voice in Brazilian literature. Sadly the author died, aged forty-three, soon after it was published in 2008.

Due to his mental fragility, Rodrigo de Souza Leão rarely left his house and yet, through social media, blogging, and e-mail, he became close to many Brazilian writers and poets and remains highly regarded today.

Synopsis:

An original and comic voice from contemporary Brazil—Rodrigo de Souza Leão orchestrates a carnival among the mad.

About the Author

Rodrigo Antonio de Souza Leão Rodrigo de Souza Leão was born in Rio de Janeiro in 1965 and died there in 2008, in a psychiatric clinic, shortly after publishing his extraordinary autobiographical novel All Dogs are Blue. Due to his mental fragility, Souza Leão rarely left his house and yet, through social media, blogging and email, he became close to many Brazilian writers and poets, and remains highly regarded today. His death was marked by a flood of poems in homage.

Souza Leão was a prolific writer, publishing many poetry collections in his lifetime and co-founding Zunái, one of Brazils most important poetry magazines. Since his death, further works of fiction have been published to widespread acclaim and his ‘outsider art received a dedicated exhibition at Rios Museum of Modern Art. All Dogs are Blue has been adapted for the stage and will be published in Spanish in Juan Pablo Villaloboss translation.

Publisher Stefan Tobler Stefan Tobler founded And Other Stories in 2010 out of frustration at the great books not being published in English. Born in the Amazon to English and Swiss parents, he translates from Portuguese and German. Recent translations include Água Viva by Clarice Lispector and the poetry collection Silence River by Antônio Moura.

Translator Zoe Perry Zoë Perry was born in the Southern United States in 1981 to an American father and Canadian mother. A full-time translator since 2010, she also works from French. After spending the last eight years living everywhere from Moscow to Montreal, including four years in São Paulo, Brazil, she now calls Madrid home.
