Paraguayan Sea, Paperback / softback Book


Originally written in Portunhol - a Spanish-Portuguese mix from where Brazil and Argentina border Paraguay - with Guarani, Bueno's Paraguayan Sea is a homage to life, to being embodied, to border crossing, and to language itself.

Who is its Paraguayan narrator who has loved two men, old and young, in a hot/cold beach town in Brazil?

A woman, as she says? A gay man switching pronouns? Paraguayan Sea is a river-to-the-sea of identities and migrations, its Portunhol translated into Frenglish by the polylingual poet Erin Moure.
