(Portuguese edition)

Malik. I think of him as a totem that kept the tribe together, trying to adjust to the flat and dreaming of his old greenery surrounded teepee.
In the few photos we took after his departure, we look like a handful of coins thrown into the air, fallen haphazardly, all scattered about. This, for instance, with Blanche looking at me, Black Elk looking up at the sky, Fossil looking down at his trainers and Miss Kitty in her sunglasses, looking inside, at the places only she could go. 
After the summer when it all began to burn, the five of us never appeared together in pictures. It was the summer of the Great Crossing of the Desert of Death. Or, simply, the summer of the Great Crossing. 
I remember it as if it were today.

 

This book is part of the 2 Steps and a Leap collection.

What they say

A book for children and teenagers? That’s only half-true. Brother wolf is so good that every grown up should be forced to read it.

Pedro Miguel Silva, website Rua de Baixo

Brother wolf is an overwhelming novel in the way it questions the nature of affection and how we build our place in the world – a place between memory and doubt and always with the dead nearby.

Sara Figueiredo Costa, Atual magazine / Expresso

This story has an immense breath, and so do its black and blue illustrations, which leave hints of emptiness, of trace, of an ultimate-space. (…) António Jorge Gonçalves strengthens parts of the story with perspectives of space, thus amplifying the text’s emotional references.

Andreia Brites, in “Blimunda” magazine (Saramago Foundation)
