OrangeReviewStarHearing from local writers helps one get a feel for a place. This collection of short stories, vignettes, and prose poems is presented geographically and features diverse locales—from the Amazon rain forests and the biodiversity of the north country to the nation's two largest cities, Rio and São Paulo. Great short-form reading.
