Editorial Reviews

World Literature Today
“One of the best contemporary writers from Brazil.”
Luiz Fernando Valente - Latin American Research Review
“While exhibiting a deep sensitivity to the complex currents in Brazilian society, Ribeiro’s novels and short stories also display a keen awareness of the problematic relationships existing among history, fiction, and truth.”
Brian Evenson
“Ribeiro has a quietly precise satirical eye.”
