Jabuti Award: Brazilian Book Published Abroad Category
Created in 1958 by the Brazilian Book Chamber (CBL), Jabuti Award is the most traditional and prestigious literary prize in Brazil, granting the winners recognition from the Brazilian intellectual community.

Publishing houses of several segments and independent writers apply annually their books hoping for the desired statuette and the recognition it provides. Winning a Jabuti is a desire by all of those who consider a book as an ideal of life. It is a distinction that gives to its winner much more than a financial reward. Winning a Jabuti represents to the book the ballast of the Brazilian intellectual community, it means to be admitted to a group of remarkable writers that are part of national literature.

In the last edition of the award, the Mexican edition of the title “Torto Arado” (Crooked Plough) took home the statuette in the Brazilian Book Published Abroad category. The title was released in Brazil by the Todavia publisher, and in Mexico by Textofilia Ediciones.
