Mia Couto: The Tuner of Silences.

Mia Couto

The Tuner of Silences

David Brookshaw, tr.



The Tuner of Silences is Mozambican author Mia Couto's eighth novel to be translated into English. Translator David Brookshaw renders this colloquially written story about eleven-year-old Mwanito confronting a legacy of war. Dealing with issues both familial and national, The Tuner of Silences is a grim, surreal portrayal of war and its lasting consequences.
