NPR Reviews Beatriz Bracher

Brazilian novelist Beatriz Bracher will speak at the UCLA Center for Brazilian Studies on October 10 about her new novel, “I Didn’t Talk.” which was recently reviewed by NPR:

"Gustavo, the Brazilian professor and narrator of Beatriz Bracher's 'I Didn't Talk', has found himself with a lot of time to think about stories. He's recently retired from his job, and as he goes through years of accumulated papers, he finds himself constantly being transported back in time, remembering his past. 'Stories are the shape we gave things to pass the time in line at the bank, on the bus, at the bakery counter,' he reflects."
