Our New Story Is: "The Wet Nurse" by José Anilto

posted Dec 15, 2013, 2:08 PM by Rafa Lombardino
It's that time of the month again! Here's a new contemporary Brazilian short story fresh out of the oven. Today we have the pleasure of featuring the work of José Anilto, military police captain who wrote a book of short stories and articles.

We've selected "The Wet Nurse" because it depicts a very important moment in Brazilian history: the end of slavery. This short story shows a glimpse of what life was like for slaves in Brazilian plantations and the rise of the abolitionist movement in the second half of the 1800s.

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