About the Author

Djaimilia Pereira de Almeida was born in Luanda, Angola, and grew up in Lisbon. She has a PhD in literary theory from the University of Lisbon. Her stories and essays have appeared in Granta.com, Words Without Borders, Granta Portugal, Observador, Somos Libros, Ler, serrote, and 451. Eric M. B. Becker is the editor of Words Without Borders and a translator from the Portuguese. He has translated Mia Couto, Paulo Coelho, and Martha Batalha, among others.


Thoughtfully observed and calmly experimental. . . . A compelling portrait of [Mila's] quest to define her identity on her own.
The reader is pulled along throughout by a sly, evasive humor--where unreliable memory ends, Almeida seems to say, storytelling begins. Heady and smart.
