And Still the Earth

American Literature Series
Ignácio de Loyola Brandão
Translated by Ellen Watson

Welcome to São Paulo, Brazil, in the not too distant future. Water is scarce, garbage clogs the city, movement is restricted, and the System—sinister, omnipotent, secret—rules its subjects’ every moment and thought. Here, middle-aged Souza lives a meaningless life in a world where hope is a lie and all memory of the past is forbidden. A classic novel of “dystopia,” looking back to Orwell’s 1984 and forward to Terry Gilliam’s Brazil, And Still the Earth stands with Loyola Brandão’s Zero as one of the author’s greatest, and darkest, achievements.
