With the skill of a wise storyteller, Martinho da Vila tells a luscious narrative, following the movements of the love story of Daomé Benino and Iana Smith. In addition to the simple work of fiction, in this book the author traces a great panel in which fragments of memory compose a harmonious whole. By analyzing the details of this rich mosaic, the reader can perceive a kind of pantheon, formed by the heroes who built the black identity of Brazil. In the background, places, characters and songs that, in each period, imprinted the memories of the narrator and their protagonists.
