A collection of six short stories written by Machado de Assis (1839- 1908), widely regarded as Brazil’s greatest writer, adapted into comics. The selection highlights themes concerning slavery and its legacy in the country’s historical inequality. Machado de Assis himself was a witness to this process, as his paternal grandparents were freed slaves. Caeto and Masanori, editor and author of Nori e eu, are reunited to give life to the stories with sharp drawings that reaffirm Machado de Assis’s universality.
