O tribunal da quinta-feiraBook - 2016 | Portuguese
An advertising man makes a confession via email to his best friend. The texts speak of sex and love, marriage and betrayal, using offensive terms and jokes to tell the story of a long personal crisis. When the protagonist's ex-wife makes copies of the messages and distributes them, it touches off the scandal at the center of this explosive novel. The thread of history, which unites the destiny of the characters before an unusual court, are the lingering and still uncomfortable ripples of the AIDS epidemic. What is at stake are the limits of what we mean by tolerance - but in order to arrive there, they must go beyond what would be a "correct" literature when dealing with homophobia, harassment, violence, empathy, freedom and solidarity.
