Caio Fern - Alemão





As Caio told me he was writing a book, I immediately thought:
-he is a complete artist- you already know that I consider Caio a great painter, who is able to express very well and with its own style, the soul of his characters, making them alive and very close to us. His paintings is 99% autobiographical, which does not happen at the first look in the book but, for me really only at the first look.
Reading the story of Nicholas I understand that the essence of Caio is present throughout the book.
I must say that I have always had an emotional tie with Brazil and years ago I read a lot of Brazilian literature from Coelho (that- sorry-I don't liked so much) to Amado (that I loved), but I lacked for a book describing life in Brazil today, I wanted a book that should take place in the past, or imaginary places, I wonted enter the Brazilian reality today with his, TV or radio programm, music of young people, in short of daily life in Brasil, but among all the contradictions of this country and try to understand how European immigration influenced the character of different ethnic groups in Brazil and I must say I am very happy to read alemão, even proud of my friend Caio who has demonstrated this to be really a complete artist.

Caio thanks also a lot for find place also for me in your book with yours affectionate and friendly, dedication to me among people who you have thanked.

Quando Caio mi disse che stava scrivendo un libro, ho subito pensato:
-lui é un artista completo- giá voi sapete che considero Caio un grande pittore, che riesce ad esprimere benissimo e con uno stile tutto suo, l'anima dei suoi personaggi, rendendoli vivi e molto vicini a noi. La sua opera pittorica é per il 99% autobriografica, cosa che non succede nel libro, o forse si?
Leggendo le vicende di Nicholas capisco che l'essenza di Caio é presente in tutto il libro.
Devo dire che anni fa ho letto molta letteratura brasiliana da Coelho a Amado, ma mi mancava un libro che descrivesse la vita odierna in brasile, volevo un libro che non si svolgesse nel passato o in luoghi immaginari, voelvo entrare nella realtá odierna brasiliana, e devo dire che sono molto felice di leggere questo libro, anche fiera del mio amico Caio che ha dimostrato con questo di essere veramente un artista completo.

Caio grazie anche per la dedica che, cosí affettuosamente e amichevolmente hai impresso per me sul tuo libro.

Laura, sto anche leggendo "Alemão" ma io sono ancora a metà ...
Ho letto lentamente, me lo sto godendo, le scene sono molto familiare per me, è molto avvincente!
