Miguel Sousa Tavares was born in Porto in 1952. Born to the Portuguese poet Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen and of the lawyer Francisco de Sousa Tavares, he started his professional life in advocacy but later opted for journalism, from which he goes to the literary writing. His work is quite diversified and it is basically marked by chronicles and documentaries. He has made other literary tours with the publication of a children’s book, several tales and the novel Equador, a best-seller in Portugal and published in several other countries. He has recently started a TV programme on prime time.
In this book, Miguel Sousa Tavares shares his photos and unique experiences from his travels to São Tomé e Príncipe, Amazone, Egypt, Goa, Cape Verde, Alentejo, Alhambra, Marrakeshe, Ivory Coast, Tunis, Brazil, Venice, Guadalupe, Kruger Park, etc.
"This is a travel book, a book by someone who, as in childhood dreams, has been fortunate enough to leave so often with little more than a travel bag and a camera or camera. (...) I did not always travel south, but I saw nothing as extraordinary as the south. The South is an airplane door that opens and a heady scent of green that sucks us, the heat, the moisture attached to the skin, the laughter of the people, the noise, the confusion of a luggage terminal, an excess of everything that swallows us and creeps like a gigantic wave. You want to close your eyes, break your gestures and let yourself go. But it is precisely in this chaos that I seek the lucidity of the storyteller. "
