Luis Fernando Verissimo (b. 1936), son of the ambassador Erico Verissimo, is one of the most popular literary figures in Brazil today. His crônicas have appeared in major national publications and the national weekly Veja, providing observations about Brazilian life, as well as wonderful illustrations and cartoons.
“Verissimo demonstrates that one writes to pay homage, to provide pleasure, and to have fun. ”
