Welcome to Contemporary Brazilian Short Stories (CBSS), a website dedicated to publishing short stories written by contemporary Brazilian authors. Our mission is to translate these tales into English and share different perspectives from Brazil with the world.

Here you will find a new story every 15 days. We will be touching a variety of subjects, including personal and professional life, love, loneliness, comedy, crime, environment, and random observations of daily routines.

"I must have learned how to speak (and think) 
from these brief episodes of human interaction 
and from the few books that landed in my hands."

by Rafael Sperling
