Chiquinho

$19.95
Originally published in Portuguese in 1947, Baltazar Lopes’s Chiquinho offers a rich and compelling exploration of Cabo Verde’s unique identity. Tracing the arc of its young protagonist’s life as he approaches adulthood, the novel follows Chiquinho as he leaves his village, journeys to São Vicente Island to further his education, returns home as drought and famine strike the archipelago, and makes the difficult decision to join his father in New Bedford, Massachusetts. Reflecting the challenges faced by the Creole intellectuals of the so­-called Claridade generation, this long ­overdue English translation of Chiquinho is sure to appeal to academic audiences as well as the general reader.
