ANTONIO CALLADO

[ Niterói: 1917 – 1997 ] Has found the raw material for his fiction in Brazil’s political and social reality. He has used data gathered for news reports in constructing his novels. Through this plunge into the nation’s history, Callado has brought universal themes to life: social conflicts, struggles between the political and religious realms, people living in poverty and ignorance.
