Read full description of the books Nós Matámos o Cão Tinhoso:

Este é um livro que passa despercebido a um grande leque de leitores. Porém, quando olhado com mais atenção, percebe-se que em poucas e simples páginas procurou/a chamar a atenção de situações injustas, exploratórias e pobremente humanas. Desenrola-se nele uma sequência de contos interligados a um espaço, um território que precisa de ser tomado em atenção.

Penso que é o despertar desta atenção que o autor procurou quando elaborou esta obra. Tudo isto através da perspectiva de uma criança, que se por alguns momentos apresentou pensamentos e sentimentos conscientes e maduros, em outros momentos apresentou pensamentos "egocêntricos", tal como a demais população de qualquer idade. Sente-se a tristeza das personagens enquanto lentamente vamo-nos engrenando na terra onde a História, de facto, não é mais que o relato de sofrimento e abuso humano.

Em consonância com a capa do livro, acredito que Honwana para descrever resumidamente este livro poderia recorrer à célere frase do pintor com uma pequena adaptação (Basquiat):

"Believe or not, actually i draw."

Read information about the author

Ebook Nós Matámos o Cão Tinhoso read Online! Luís Bernado Honwana (born 1942) is a Mozambican author.

Luís Bernardo Honwana was born Luís Augusto Bernardo Manuel in Lourenço Marques (present-day Maputo), Mozambique. His parents, Raúl Bernardo Manuel (Honwana) and Naly Jeremias Nhaca, belonged to the Ronga people from Moamba, a town about 55 km northwest of Maputo. In 1964 he became a militant with FRELIMO, a front that had the objective to liberate Mozambique from Portuguese colonial rule. Due to his political activities he was arrested by the colonial authorities and was incarcerated for three years.

He studied law in Portugal and worked for some time as a journalist. He was appointed director of President's office under Samora Machel. Later in 1981, he became Secretary of State for culture. He served on the Executive Board of UNESCO from 1987 to 1991 and was chairman of UNESCO's Intergovernmental Committee for the World Decade for Culture and Development. In 1995, he was appointed director of the newly opened UNESCO office in South Africa. Since he retired from the organization in 2002, he has been active in research in the arts, history and ethno-linguistics.

Honwana is the author of a single book, Nós Matámos o Cão-Tinhoso (1964), translated into English as We Killed Mangy Dog and Other Stories, and the tale "Hands of the Blacks". This work has proved enormously influential and a case can be made for it being the touchstone of contemporary Mozambican narrative. We Killed Mangy Dog is a collection of short stories set in the (Portuguese) colonial era at the turn of the sixties and is reflective of the harsh life black Mozambicans lived under the Salazar regime. Several of the stories are told from the point of view of children or alienated adolescents and most feature the rich mix of races, religions and ethnicities that would later preoccupy Mozambique's most internationally celebrated writer, Mia Couto.
