2016 Man Booker Longlist: A Cup of Rage by Raduan Nassar

Country: Brazil

Translated by Stefan Tobler 

Radaun Nassar, is arguably a Laurentian figure in the history of Brazilian literature. A mercurial author, who had stopped writing and taken to agriculture in 1984, after, debuting with Ancient Tillage in 1975, has been highly acclaimed for his writing. A Cup of Rage, a novella written by him has been nominated for The Man Booker Prize this year.

Cup of Rage deals with the intensely charged relationship of a chauvinistic, older farmer with a young, feministic erudite woman after a night of sex on his farm. Nassaur takes the reader into the very dark crevices of the society, cutting open the class and gender division, the chasm that produces obstinate anger, biased and destructive.

About Sprightly Spirit

“I dare do all that may become a man. Who dares more is none”. And all, may be. It may be the vigor. Or the spirit. Or the courage to avoid being “politically correct” or bent. And, ban all averse with immaculate overture of graciously fathomable words firm in views. Subtle. Justifying the undying conscience. Values. Knowledge. And, dares to stay true. True to own. True to the world. And, to the words. With a dream in eyes it exists. In you. In me. In all. The sprite that never shies away. The spirit that never dies!
