New collection of short stories explores power relations and internal conflicts

“The Day I Didn’t Kill the President” is by São Paulo-based Celso Suarana, from Minas Gerais

The collection of short stories “The Day I Didn’t Kill the President”, by São Paulo-based Celso Suarana, from Minas Gerais, addresses the complex power relations present in different spheres of life, from the family to the institutional environment. The book features characters in conflict with their own impotence and the desire to annihilate their opponents.

The work brings stories such as the secret relationship between a Muslim prince and a Brazilian man, also a settling of accounts between father and son symbolized by hunting trophies, a dizzying walk to deliver the weapon of an attack and a future machine programmed to provide the perfect death.

There is also an unlikely meeting with a far-right president on a beach morning and the dystopia of a Carnival dominated by religious fundamentalism. All with the author using language in an innovative way, subverting narrative models and mixing realism and unusualness with sarcasm and irony.
