" I would say that this is something anyone who wants to immerse themselves in the world of the iconoclast, the jester, the humanist, and therefore have their humanity reasserted and affirmed, should take the time to read. This is the meat on the bones of modern literature, and might yet drag me out of my apolitical comfort zone."
"It is genius. It reminded me (lazily on my part, I suspect) of Gabriel Garcia Marquez and his magical realism, but Marquez is more airy, somehow vaster and less dense. There is not a word superfluous in Vultures in the Living Room, not an image goes to waste. There is not an appeal to the reader too harsh, and Falcão is not asking for your pity: he is asking for your rage. He is asking for your indignance. He is offering his hand in solidarity and offering his wit and his pen and his ability to laser-like get to the heart of the matter, these are his weapons and he wields them masterfully. The author exists in a black hole pinpoint of jewel-like intensity."
Lula Falcão is a journalist and political advocate originally from Brazil's northeast. He is the author of several books including Iberê according to Paul, a widely acclaimed "psycho-graphic novel," in the words of a Brazilian critic. It is currently being adapted to film: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdh1gFHz59Y, abut a ghost writer's symbiotic and insalubrious friendship with a Pentecostal preacher.
