Happy New Year From AMB

Happy New Year!

I’d like to take a moment to thank everyone who visited AMISSINBOOK in 2010, and for sharing the link with your friends and colleagues. Nine months ago the project began with a simple notion: a very important book is missing, and in less than one year’s time, João Guimarães Rosa’s name has appeared on the computer screens of more than 3,000 visitors from around the world (click on READ MORE below to see a list of cities & countries), and a new translation of his seminal work, Grande Sertão: Veredas, (a missing book in the English language) is rumored to be in the planning stages.

I cannot express how excited I am by the progress we’ve made thus far and how eagerly I look forward to 2011.

I already have some great new features in the works, which include collaborations with new artists working in new mediums; new and emerging scholars and translators; and, of course, more from the contributors previously featured on AMB whom we’ve all come to appreciate and respect for their willingness to share.

I would like to especially thank the following individuals for their continual and dedicated support of AMISSINGBOOK:

One thought on “Happy New Year From AMB

  1. Hi Felipe! Just read the Rosa interview from 1965 and it only confirmed to me what I already discovered in the master’s works, a profoundly subtle, tactile intelligence, clear and deep as the endless river he sees himself preregrinating in Crocodile form. Keep up the great endeavour my friend, clarion call as far as your voice will reach the imperishable name of Rosa, as I am working to disseminate the immortal man’s works in my own country.
