A chat with Felipe Hirsch and Alexandre Rabelo, excerpts reading, autograph session. After decades out of print, the saga around diva Melinha Marchiotti returns now in a new edition. Launched for the first time in the 1980s, this book definitively shows that João Silvério Trevisan is one of our most daring and inventive prose writers. Written with extraordinary creative freedom, “Vagas Notícias de Melinha Marchiotti” (Vague News of Melinha Marchiotti) represents a hurricane of inventiveness and transgression, both linguistic and stylistic, as well as structural and thematic. Bold, polemical and ebullient, this novel mixes romance fiction, poems, real diaries, apocryphal letters, narrative fragments, cinematographic memories, obscene rumors, among other possible genres and textual subversions. It is a delicious fiction that instigates and blurs the barriers between real life and fictional literature, lucidity and debauchery.
