First published in Brazil (2000) now being worked for motion picture,
a dream-come-true story wrapped as a unique adventure.
SAN FRANCISCO - Alvidia, Yet Another Horizon, the Brazilian bestselling "Alvídia, Um Horizonte a Mais" by Luís Peazê published in Portuguese (2000), after nearly two decades, reaches the English language readers.. “After dozens titles since Alvidia as the milestone, now looking the rearview mirror it all still seems a needed adventure as I thought eighteen years ago”, says Peazê who is also working with a screenplay writer for a motion picture based on Alvidia. The book is launched by Capt Lui Books (San Francisco), a new publishing stamp run by the author and will be available in print and ebook.
Alvidia, Yet Another Horizon is a unique dream come ture story with real world protagonists. “ …it is Luís, while protagonist, who tells this amazing and moving story, with his wife, Helga, at his side; but it is Peazê who succeeds in convincing the reader to take part in the adventure. He is obstinate in his determination to avoid the first person, dribbling around the tough rules of the semiotics, without ignoring it; a clear effort to avoid the monotony of a narrative that could be merely linear. Despite of who is occasionally in charge, Luís, a naive adventurer, and Peazê, a impassioned writer, are blended throughout the story…” It was the first literary critic by no less than Moacir C. Lopes author of the acclaimed The Oister and the Wind (book and motion picture).
Including a passage sharing a house with Bhagavan Das in Mill Valley, CA, an icon from the beatnik era who inspired Timoty Leary, Allen Ginsberg and Ram Das among many, Luís unfold a collection of encounters with people, places and circumstances feeding his search and endurance…
And Mociar adds: “Peazê is fortunate in being able to write about an abundance of facts and a cast of richly portrayed individuals, (...) He clearly meets the challenge of presenting us with a unique adventure. The precedent for this sort of tale is Hemingway, although a fictionist, who in "The Old Man and the Sea". Was not by accident that later Luís Peazê became THE translator of Ernest Hemingway in Brazil; commissioned by a major Brazilian publisher, Bertrand, to translate For Whom The Bell Tolls.”
