    eBook Suneeta Peres da Costa ´ eBook Saudade Kindle Ç ´ completewoman.co saudade mobile, Saudade PDF Saudade is a bittersweet longing for that which is lost A Portuguese word often claimed to be untranslatable it is a melancholic yearning; an affectionate nostalgia; the ‘ presence of an absence’Suneeta Peres da Costa expands the concept of saudade to encompass the dislocation and loss felt by diasporas Set during the twilight of the Portuguese Empire in the 1960s and 70s amidst the Angolan independence movement and civil war this coming of age story about a young Goan girl is told with simple eleganceThis is a very slight book My library copy ran to 114 pages but it was also a small format – shorter and suarer than a typical paperback – so the ‘real’ page count would be even less Of course it’s possible to tell a powerful punchy story in very few pages but here I felt a mismatch between t

    eBook Suneeta Peres da Costa ´ eBook Saudade Kindle Ç ´ completewoman.co saudade mobile, Saudade PDFAn interesting and short read but not one that grabbed me and wouldn't let go I enjoyed some of the prose and learning a bit of history There were some memorable passages as we go through the internal changes taking place as the narrator evolves from a young child to a young woman seeing her perspective and understanding change with experiences The story catalogs how our view of our parents in particular goes through a metamorphosis I came to see how the past like some ancient karma inscribes itself on the body as much as the mind so that what we do to others returns to haunt us in the subtlest manner Although his body was not broken by the weight of a felled plane tree or deafened by a harvester Papa was in his own way sickened by so many secrets he was keeping we were increasingly hostage to his moods to his silences and sudden outbursts his sudden demonstrations of affection and withdrawalWe all experience this kind of awakening and this author captures that reasonably well bo

    eBook Suneeta Peres da Costa ´ eBook Saudade Kindle Ç ´ completewoman.co saudade mobile, Saudade PDFA super short book just over 100 pages but I took five days to read it I wanted to keep it slow and savor this wonderfully written look at a girlhood and adolescence in 1960 70s Angola on the verge of revolution The narrator never named I think is born in Angola but her parents are ethnically Indian and immigrated from another former Portuguese colony Goa The title of the book is one of those untranslatable words like Schadenfreude Its meaning is something like melancholic longing which really suits the tone of this novella The uestion is what is the narrator longing for? There are lots of interesting answers to that uestion to ponder
