Synopsys

“A culpa é destas liberdades is a surprising book on political satire and traditions, accentuated by subtle and intelligent humor, that grabs the readers’ attention from the first page on. It does so, because if initially the incredible speech of the character invented by João Cerqueira amazes, startles, and outrages, little by little, by the time the reader realizes the sham to which he has been attracted to, the most likely felt hostility towards the text, is replaced by the intense desire to follow along the wildest, deliriant and deliciously absurd thoughts that he is rewarded with. The nonsense arguments in defense of prostitution and alcoholism, the association of drugs with the current regime and the hillbilly dissertations on modern art are great examples of that rare ironic ability shown by the author” – summary in the preface by Manuel Pavão.
