Another 15 days went by and now it's time to bring you a new contemporary Brazilian short story once again. Today we have the pleasure to feature the work of Amalri Nascimento, a writer from Rio Grande do Norte in northern Brazil.

We've selected "The Foretold Tragedy" because it clearly reflects a sad reality Brazilians have to live with year after year: how natural events are magnified by man-made problems, in a combination that almost always equals an unfortunate national disaster and time for mourning.

We hope you enjoy Amalri's work and feel free to comment on it.
