I'm also guilty of not reading enough fiction in translation, but will probably take a pass on this one.

Funny you should mention men writing women characters. I'm reading Wally Lamb's We Are Water now and have long felt that he's one of the best in that area.

Amy

Yes, Wally Lamb, and I'm trying to remember--I know there have been other male authors I felt wrote women very well and honestly. I saw a reviewer on Goodreads refer to this book as misogynistic, and while I didn't use that word myself, I didn't think of it as an incorrect characterization.

Still, a book from Mozambique.... It sounds like the author is revisiting the Garden of Eden story. Paradise until a woman comes along...

Amy

Although it was the death of a woman that drove them into the "paradise". Could be a Garden of Eden story, but I'd still like to see the woman be as interesting and fully developed as the men.
