the writer, who has a great writing power. he is extremely close to the people of his land, and includes the details of his autobiography in most of his works. he was born to a local mother, and his father was from portugal, if i am not mistaken. zeze's life is his life, he wrote his trilogy based entirely on himself and combining with his dreams. he also lived with latin american indians for months to write his works afterwards ( it only makes up 10% of the continent)

although his more famous works, i think his best works are wild bananas and my brother the wind, my brother the sea. in the wild banana, he describes two men who are mining, one large, a gigantic man who can open beer caps with his finger, and the other is his best friend. my brother is the wind, and my brother the sea, as the name suggests, is the story of one of the brazilian sailors, but most of the story takes place in brazil's coldest and most continental climate.

in his books, sailors, micros, miners, workers who plow salt in saltpans, street vendors, children who shout "watermelon" when it smells of sharks (thanks to which we learned that a shark smells like watermelon), mothers who love their children very much, brothers who are madly attached to each other are in the foreground. and of course, incurable poverty is the book that most touched the lives of the natives.
