Read full description of the books:



Uma nevasca fecha o aeroporto de Tóquio. Todos os voos estão cancelados. Treze passageiros que seguiam para a cidade não têm outra opção que não sentar e aguardar. Reunidos pelo acaso no espaço sem identidade de um aeroporto, os viajantes falam. Mais que preencher o tempo, as histórias que contam reafirmam suas personalidades em trânsito, sob o risco de desaparecerem na escuridão da longa noite anônima. As narrativas vagueiam pelo bizarro, pelo fantástico e pelo humor negro. Criticam a cultura do consumo e seu vazio, celebram o sem sentido cotidiano e suas pequenas vitórias, divertem com o maravilhoso e o alegre. Colocados em sequência, os contos formam um romance inusitado sobre esperanças, sonhos e desapontamentos que conectam todos em todos os lugares.

Read information about the author

Ebook Tóquio Cancelado read Online! Rana Dasgupta is a British-Indian writer. He grew up in Cambridge, England and studied at Balliol College, Oxford, the Conservatoire Darius Milhaud in Aix-en-Provence, and the University of Wisconsin–Madison. He lives in Delhi, India.

His first novel, Tokyo Cancelled (2005), was an examination of the forces and experiences of globalization. Billed as a modern-day Canterbury Tales, thirteen passengers stuck overnight in an airport tell thirteen stories from different cities in the world, stories that resemble contemporary fairytales, mythic and surreal. The tales add up to a broad exploration of 21st century forms of life, which includes billionaires, film stars, migrant labourers, illegal immigrants and sailors. [1] Tokyo Cancelled was shortlisted for the 2005 John Llewellyn Rhys Prize.

Dasgupta's second novel, Solo (2009) is an epic tale of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries told from the perspective of a one hundred-year old Bulgarian man. Having achieved little in his twentieth-century life, he settles into a long and prophetic daydream of the twenty-first century, where all the ideological experiments of the old century are over, and a collection of startling characters - demons and angels - live a life beyond utopia.
