MÁRIO PRATA

[ Uberaba: 1946 ] Polemic, amusing, somewhat biting – that’s Mario Prata. A writer of short narratives focusing on customs, he continues chronicling a very well-humored look at everyday life, in his soap operas, plays, fiction, and other genres. But he knows how to do this with the elegance that turns banality into art.
