O Som do Rugido da Onça
Em 1817, Spix e Martius desembarcaram no Brasil com a missão de registrar suas impressões sobre o país. Três anos e 10 mil quilômetros depois, os exploradores voltaram a Munique trazendo consigo não apenas um extenso relato da viagem, mas também um menino e uma menina indígenas, que morreriam pouco tempo depois de chegar em solo europeu.
Em seu quinto romance, Micheliny Verunschk constrói uma poderosa narrativa que deixa de lado a historiografia hegemônica para dar protagonismo às crianças – batizadas aqui de Iñe e e Juri – arrancadas de sua terra natal. Entrelaçando a trama do século XIX ao Brasil contemporâneo, somos apresentados também a Josefa, jovem que reconhece as lacunas de seu passado ao ver a imagem de Iñe e em uma exposição.
Com uma prosa embebida de lirismo, este é um livro sem paralelos na literatura brasileira ao tratar de temas como memória, colonialismo e pertencimento.
Um romance que expande as fronteiras da arte literária ao trazer memória, argumentos antropológicos e o melhor que a ficção pode nos oferecer. – Itamar Vieira Junior
