Luiz Ruffato's grand literary project "Inferno Provisório" narrates the history of Brazil from the perspective of ordinary people living in unsignificant hinterland. The five-volume German translation of this magnum opus was recently concluded. In 2019, Ruffato published a novel that can be read as a continuation to this work. The "provisional hell" that ended in 2003 seems to be back with today's political and economic crises. Ruffato's new novel takes that personally in a new literary approach. Translation of this new novel, O verão tardio, into German will be the work of this fellowship.
