Man Crossing Bridges

Ronaldo Correia de Brito

Translated by Daniel Hahn

‘He prefers the battles of the bed, but his wife insists on his keeping to a severe containment.’

Ronaldo Correia de Brito

Ronaldo Correia de Brito was born in 1951, in a small town in Ceará, in the Northeast region of Brazil, and now lives in Recife, Pernambuco. His first collection (Knife) was launched in 2003. Shortly after that, Ronaldo published his second story collection (Book of Men), and established himself as an accomplished short story writer (the third collection, Immoral Portraits, would be published in 2010). He has since written two novels Galilee (2010) and I’ve Been Outside (2012).
