Days of Bossa Nova
It’s the story of Felipe Navarra, a poor boy from the countryside who rises to become a radio celebrity in the 1960’s and 70’s, selling his soul to the devil in the chaos of São Paulo, the largest city in Brazil. This family saga is a heartfelt portrait of Felipe and his beloved city that witnesses its own decadence, seasoned in the golden age of radio, Bossa Nova, and radionovelas.

When I was a girl, I lived in an apartment on a busy avenue in São Paulo, where electric trolleys passed all day. While watching those buses up and down the road, I dreamed of traveling the world and seeing all sorts of streets.
Now I look back to all the streets I’ve explored in different countries, working as a journalist, learning languages and settling down in cities I had never imagined living in. So, here I am in New York, writing, teaching Italian, married to and Irish guy and speaking Portuguese to my children.
