Summary

Casa Forte Press announces the first English translation of Lula Falcão's Vultures in the Living Room, available in all bookstores and Kindle worldwide. 
 
Falcão--the author of critically acclaimed books including one being adapted to screen—writes from the port city of Recife.  His writing is unmistakably original,  his  satirical and at times absurdist stories provide a direct gateway to universal truths in contemporary Brazil.
 
Vultures in the Living Room, like Ionesco's post -war Rhinoceros, is an important reflection on human vulnerability during times of political and social uncertainty.
 
 
 
A escrita de Falcão é inconfundivelmente original. Ele equilibra o impossível na narrativa: sua prosa é atemporal, mas profundamente enraizada na obscura história recente do Brasil. São pequenos contos que oscilam entre o absurdo e o sentido e a falta de sentido da vida.

    Taking him by the throat with one slender and long-fingered hand, she spat down into his upturned face before asking: “How does it feel to know you are now the property of a young Chinese woman?” In 1920's Paris, a redoubtable French detective and the English doctor who has been his lifelong friend take on a threat to world peace from a sadistic Chinese genius and his equally malevolent and perverted daughter. Their plans are evil, their methods extreme. The fate of the world hangs in the balance as this story moves from the Chinese mainland to Paris, then on to England and back again. For both detective and doctor, their futures lies in the interior of China itself, as they become the chattels of two very different women with one major common denominator – they both enjoy absolute control over the men they hold captive. For the victims of these sadistic females, it’s one horrifying nightmare! Yet, despite the evil they do, these helpless males can’t help but be infatuated.
