The Care of Birds

O cuidado dos pássaros

Francisco Sousa Lobo

Chili com Carne | 2017 | 140 pages | 16 x 23 cm | softcover

"Peter Hickey is to pedophiles what birdwatchers are to hunters", says Peter himself, the protagonist of this story. He is a retired man who divides his life between religious devotion, an immoderate love for children and a fascination for birds, although none of these seem to correspond to him. God has not listened to him for a long time, loving children in a certain way is wrong — he knows it — and the birds judge and insult him. A story about sin, loneliness and the vital anguish of a man destined not to fit in, full of humor and melancholy.
