There was heat that smelled of bread and dead fish
There was heat that smelled of bread and dead fish is conceived as a journey through the passing of time under the shadows of colonialism, war and utopia in Mozambique. In the form of a semi fictional diary a narrator remembers encounters, moments, events and their aftermaths as subtle and even imaginary presences that do not seem to fit properly in the idea of current-day, tangible reality.
