Ancient Tillage (Paperback)

Raduan Nassar

-  

'I felt the powerful strength of my family overrunning me like a heavy rush of water'. For Andre, a young man growing up on a farm in Brazil, life consists of 'the earth, the wheat, the bread, our table and our family'. He loves the land, fears his austere, pious father who preaches from the head of the table as if it is a pulpit, and loathes himself, as he starts to harbour shameful feelings for his sister Ana. Lyrical and sensual, told with biblical intensity, this classic Brazilian coming-of-age novel follows Andre's psychological and sexual awakening, as he must choose between body and soul, duty and freedom.
