    Paperback ↠ Saudade eBook è saudade kindle, Saudade PDFSaudade is a feeling of loss or not belonging and this is well captured by the narrator of this novella which is on the Tournament of Books shortlist It is set in 1960s pre independence Angola and the narrator and her family are Goan although she has never lived anywhere but Africa They are being pushed out even as they cling to the power that comes from being the self imposed merchant middle class This is well written and a quick read but I do get tired of books written from the perspective of the people bemoaning a loss of privilege and power that they should never have taken in the first place The narrator grapples with it but as a childteen clearly doesn't understand what the reader might and this could be a disservice I'm not sure Maybe a longer work would have had opportunity to discuss these themes

    Paperback ↠ Saudade eBook è saudade kindle, Saudade PDFThis short coming of age story had an intriguing premise and setting but ultimately left me wanting it to have a little heft The narrator is a young woman whose family has immigrated from the Goa region of India to Angola during the time it was a Portuguese colony As the narrator grows up so does Angola seek to shake off the chains of colonialism As the Portuguese rule falls apart so does the narrator’s family Excellent writing but I would have liked to see of the strife and everyday life in Angola at this time though 35⭐️

    Paperback ↠ Saudade eBook è saudade kindle, Saudade PDF35 rounded up I’m clearly like Goldilocks I’m always complaining that books are too bloated and need a firm editor and now for this slender novella I’m going to carp that it was too short Saudade is a tantalizing glimpse into a world I really knew nothing about the 20th century liberation of the last pieces of the Portuguese empire and the complex racial and social dynamics that that empire and its dissolution created Our heroine is a Portuguese speaking Catholic Goan raised in Angola where her family socializes with the white ruling class provided that they do not seem “too” Indian as her father scolds her mother when she tries to wear a sari to a social function The customs food and characters mentioned remind you of other imperial remnants Mozambique the Azores São Tomé and no longer a colony Brazil For all the literature I’ve read about the British
