A Canção de Zefanias Sforza
A passionate look at Mozambique's 35 years of independence.
Who doesn't know Zefanias Sforza? Nobody, it's true. But although no street in this city bears his name, nor does a bust or statue, the possibility of this happening is more likely than some think. Zefanias Plubius Sforza, I say with the dubious conviction of a mere notary of affections and neglect, was a citizen, or tried to be, and that is no small thing.
Set in the city of Maputo, a microcosm of the country that emerges with the proclamation of independence, this is the story of an unlikely character, as unlikely as possible, his cases, dreams and tribulations. The reader will realize that the eccentric nickname and the particular idiosyncrasy are not the best of allies in a time and place in permanent turmoil. Literature and Others
