Are you living in Brazil (or somewhere else in the world) and want to learn some Portuguese? I think that one of the best way to do it is through reading. Books can help a lot, suggesting new words and showing a culture that can be different from yours.
I love Martha. She’s funny, sharp, easy to read and always makes me think a lot. I really enjoyed Feliz Por Nada, Divã and Doidas e Santas. I’ll certainly read Simples Assim.
Her poem Morte Devagar is amazing.
If you want to follow her: Martha Medeiros
