I think what I appreciated most about this book was the style and the Miami Menage language The person would shift from third narrator to first whoever the narrator was talking about mid paragraph and there was something about that style thated to a really interesting fluidity to the prose The story itself is not that compelling There is also a rape scene mid novel that made me unsure I really wanted to continue with the story simply because of how casually it was handled by the author as casually as describing any other action in the novel I read this book with Miss Westons Masquerade little knowledge of Cape Verde and would have perhaps gotten out of it with a deeper cultural context to the story but I m not convinced I found this book when planning a holiday in Cape Verde and read it whilst away Knowing some basic facts about the country definitely helped contextualise the novel and being there made it come toife This novel is touching humorous and thought provoking It explores how we see ourselves versus how others see us by the end of it I didn t feel I d grasped a truth about the protagonist Sr Napumoceno da Silva Ara jo and I suppose that s the point It also The Millionaires Proposal left me with a vivid impression of Cape Verdeanife The Last Will Testament of Senhor da Silva Ara jo reminded me of Gabriel Garc a M ruez in its sweeping portrait of a ife and some slightly magical elements eg the 10000 umbrellas although I wouldn t call it magical realismI d ike to read other books by Germano Almeida but unfortunately I don t think any others have been translated into English Though this book is uite short only about 150 pages it Memoirs of a Millionaires Mistress left me with aot to think about It tells the Meet Phoenix life story of one Napumoceno da Silva Araujo a respected and rich Cape Verdean businessman who died at a very old age andeft a shocking will that was over 300 pages The Mistletoe Melody (A Brookhollow Story, long and beueathed everything to the bastard daughter no one knew he hadThe story particularly in the beginning describing the funeral is extremely funny in its way It is also notable for showing how various people s perceptions of the same events can be so different as to be come almost unrecognizable Araujo s nephew for instance through his eyes is a slimy arrogant deceitful Uriah Heep type character but his newfound cousin Maria de Graca sees him as aikable enough man who bears no grudge against her and they become friendly with each otherNormally I can t stand overlong paragraphs and run on sentences in books and this book had plenty of both but for some reason I didn t mind this time I didn t think I would enjoy reading this nearly as much as I did and I wish I could seek out the author s other novels but none of them have been translated into English Bookray wwwbookcrossingcomjournal7416296 Received 16th February 2011I found this a sad story of a man who basically wasted all the chances in his ife to find himself happiness by not acting on his feelings or acting too ate He could have married Dona Chica and had a acting on his feelings or acting too ate He could have married Dona Chica and had a family ife but was too worried about his reputation He married Dona Chica and had a family ife but was too worried about his reputation He chase the ady from Dakar but she The Outlaw Jesse James left him with uite anotheregacy which he also delayed dealing with He missed his moment with Dona Joia postponing his Up All Night letter tooong and being in any case too tentative and the mysterious Ad The Spiral Dance lia was not free when he wanted her and by the time she was he was noonger interested His greatest success was his business and even that he delegates to his nephew Carlos and yet does not trust him to run it without him He remains distant from everyone and even runs his business at a distance with the minimum of bother by selling direct from the ship and the dock and re exporting many of his importsNot surprisingly I found myself unable to engage with Senhor Napumoceno da Silva Ara jo and so in the end I found the book unresolved and uninspired I was hoping to get of a picture of The Erotic Mind life in Cape Verde which turns out to me a nation made up of several islands several hundred miles off the coast of West Africa Looking up Germano Almeida on Wikipedia I read that this book is supposed to show Sr Napumoceno as a relic of colonialism but I can t see that either A pleasant enough book but unmemorable This book was interesting to me in that it took place in aocation with which I was unfamiliar the Republic of Cape Verde and it was a style of writing that I had not really read before The first thing I had to do was to find out something about Cape Verde The Republic of Cape Verde is a group of 10 small islands in the central Atlantic Ocean about 350 miles off the coast of Western Africa The islands are volcanic in origin A few of them are fairly flat and others are rocky with some vegetation but in general they tend to be dry and not very verdant The native Dancing at Midnight (The Splendid Trilogy, language is Portuguese and this book was originally written in thatanguage and translated into uite a few other It Hurts When I Poop! a Story for Children Who Are Scared to Use the Potty languages prior to being available in EnglishThe islands were uninhabited when discovered by the Portuguese in the 1400 s and became central to the African slave trade The islands were also popular with pirates and were visited by Charles Darwin in 1832 I wonder if he found any interesting species there as the islands are so isolated from any other mainland The islands have few natural resources but overall theiteracy rate is high the economy New Directions is proud to introduce the masterwork of Cape Verde's greatest Here With Me (Together living writer Germano Almeida an ironic and original tragic comedy from a new voice in Africaniterature Everyone in Cape Verde knows Señor da Silva Successful entrepreneur owner of the island's first automobile a most serious upright and self made businessman

SUMMARY O testamento do Sr Napumoceno da Silva Araújo

O testamento do Sr Napumoceno da Silva AraújoDa Silva Ara jo should Wicked Lies (Men of Summer, lack for nothing on hisast earthly voyageBut the show must go on the intricacies of business wait for no man so on the very next day a very suave Carlos went to his Uncle s Office Carlos responded to the polite Bom Dia Senhor Carlos at his Uncle s Office with gravity but hey did you notice the spring in his step The air of nonchalance The Grave Tattoo little jaunt to the hipsCarlos enters the sanctum sanctorum Napumoceno da Silva Ara jo s Office and then caution to the winds decorum forgotten Carlos is full of glee the old man is dead Dead and I am his Sole heir How would his own portraitook instead of that of the old fossil But wait a minute Carlos there is this tedious business the reading of the Testament The formal reading began in the evening and there seemed no end to it it was as though Napumoceno da Silva Ara jo did not want his heirs to inherit a sou without they being aware of the trajectory his entire Georgia and the Tycoon life had taken So he began with his extremely humble beginnings he meandered through his rise in business with digressions into his manyiaisons with women Poor Carlos had suggested that he read the Testament in the peace and uiet of his house Unethical said the Notary you have to read it in the presence of the witnesses and everyone has to sign So they read and read The Notary confessed to his throat being dry The witnesses took over reading it went onevery Churchills Trial little detail of hisong ife But just a minute just when it seemed to be only a dreary narration of events Napumoceno springs a surprise that kills any hopes that Carlos ever had of being his Sole heir Napumoceno has an illegitimate daughter Maria de Gra a daughter of his housekeeper Dona Chica and it is she and not Carlos who would inherit his wealth What went wrong how did the relationship with Carlos sour Was it because Napumoceno saw in Carlos eyes the same hunger that he Napumoceno used to have Yes Napumoceno never trusted Carlos for they were so alike Did Napumoceno have iaisons with other women Oh yes many But the Lakeside Redemption love of hisife was Adelia the beautiful Adelia who strangely disappears In addition to his vast heritage Napumoceno beueaths his daughter Maria de Gra a a collection of his audio tapes where he describes his In Pursuit of a Princess life in minute detail never omitting a single event Maria de Gra a tries to piece her father sife with these tapes but Second Time Loving like any person sife the narrative has acunae that she is unable to fill On the other hand her uest and her desire to earn about her father brings her closer to Carlos her cousin and Dona Eduarda the new housekeeperGermano Almeida the author of this wonderful book wants to show his audience that parallel worlds do exist in our society and in our Dark Awakening lives This he does admirably with wit and sarcasmThe desperate battle of a boy with no shoes who comes to S o Vicente to get rich but forgets that his nephew Carlos has the same desire Forgets how Carlos works so very hard to make the business a huge success and very ungratefully disinherits himLike so very many rich people Napumocenooves to give but the recipient should be eternally grateful never should the recipient forget When he died Senhor Napumoceno was a much respected businessman a man of integrity a serious man with no vices When the Testament is read he is revealed a Much Different Person He different person He revealed a human being with all his myriad faults but also his many strengths Aren t we all the same In this novella a rich businessman Napumoceno da Silva Araujo has just died Hawks Way (Hawks Way leaving a surprising will everyone assumed the straitlaced old bachelored an abstemious Family Men life but it turns out he had his share of sexcapades The book is set in Cape Verde an island nation off the west coast of Africa but fittingly perhaps as the islands were first settled by the Portuguese readsike a Latin American novel than an African one with its Portuguese names single paragraphs that span multiple pages and obsessive focus on OMG SEXThe story is told mostly through Napumoceno s eyes relating the events of his ife as he wrote about them We also see Maria his secret illegitimate daughter as she earns about the man she never about them We also see Maria his secret illegitimate daughter as she Sabina Spielrein learns about the man she never was her father and befriends the nephew who d assumed himself to be the heir There is not any strong plotline to provide an organizing principle for these reminisces The translation is fluid though the writing isn t always as clear as it could be The characters get some development but never really grabbed me though there are a couple of good scenes The writing is not especially visual but does provide some sense of the society in Cape Verde in the middle decades of the twentieth century One particular episode bears mentioning Maria is the daughter of Napumoceno s one time cleaningady who one day happens to be wearing a skirt in Napumoceno s favorite color Unable to restrain himself he pounces on and rapes her despite her resistance I couldn t make this stuff up y all She s not happy but by the next day she is totally over it and they then have a consensual relationship I have to say I am having trouble thinking of anything grosser in Cognitive Radio Networks literature than books by men portraying women who don t mind being rapedSo though the opening initially grabbed me I can t recommend this one On to something better and good riddance to it. Ate an illegitimate child such is theot of poor self critical Señor da Silva A bit Personnel Management in Government like Calvino's Mr Palomar in his attention to protocol and in his terror ofife's passions; a bit Out of This World like Svevo's Zeno aittle pompous a The Time It Never Rained little old fashioned and often hapless Señor da Silva moves along a deliciously blurryine between farce and tragedy a self important buffoon becomes a fully human even tragic figure in the arc of this hilarious and touching novel translated into Spanish German French Italian Dutch Norwegian Swedish and now at ast English. Nd politics are stable Tourism is a main industry About 500000 people mostly of creole ethnicity Childrens Phantasies live among these islands todayThis story was not the most scintillating but I enjoyed it while still wishing just a bit that I could finish it and get on to something else But Iearned so many things along the way ike where the Cape Verde islands are and even what the word creole really meansA creole anguage is a stable full fledged The Soviet Union language that originated from a pidgin So a Portuguese based creole is based on Portugueseanguage originally but has morphed over time to become a stable Gods and Heroes language of its own Creole is also a word that describes the peopleiving in a place Science, Technology and Culture like Cape Verde they are of Portuguese descent but were born and raised in the colony I did not realize that creole had such a broad meaning I had never heard the term applied to anyone but the Louisiana creole but there are creole people and creoleanguages all over the world The No Beast So Fierce languages of Haiti Mauritius the Seychelles Barbados Liberia and Papua New Guinea are all considered to be creoleThe story is humorous but also aittle sad Sr Napumoceno did not have as fulfilling a ife as he could have and never was able to find a wife I think he was not craving children but he did think a great deal about getting married I found him to be an odd duck a person who spent much time thinking but ittle time sharing his thoughts with others or developing close relationships Much of this comes out in his Last Chance Bride lengthyast will and testament In his final years did Senhor da Silva Ara jo write his will or his memoir Either way it takes several hours to read and comes as a big shock to his nephew and presumed heir not to mention something of a scandal in wider Cape Verde societyIt is an examination of a Whos Cheatin Who?
