RAQUEL JARDIM

[ Juiz de Fora: 1926 ] Proust is a common reference when Rachel Jardim is mentioned. And for good reason. The literature produced by this Mineira from Juiz de Fora is a plunge into the human soul. It is not by chance that for two years now Rachel has been exploring the meanders and sinuous paths of Proust's writings, leading a group that is exclusively dedicated to studying the great French master. Praised by peers and critics alike, the award-winning and widely translated Rachel Jardim deserves to be better known by the public at large. Or, as Roberto Drummond put it when he referred to Inventário das cinzas: "Read Rachel Jardim: it's urgent!".
