Description
After the death of his lover, an unnamed high school science teacher analyzes the unpublished novel she left behind, in this final work by Brazilian author Osman Lins, whom the Washington Post deemed "one of the most majestic prose stylists Latin America has ever produced." The woman's novel—which is in fact named The Queen of the Prisons of Greece—concerns the efforts of a mentally ill woman to cope with the Brazilian welfare system. During the course of his explorations, the science teacher not only delves into the heart and mind of the woman he loved, but also gains deeper insight into the nature of the creative process.
