The new book is entitled "Etu Mu Dietu, Crónicas ao Acaso".

The delay in publishing the work - which marks the author’s return to the market a year after the publication of "Kubanza, chronicles at random", according to the writer who spoke to ANGOP - was due to imperative situations.

With the use of popular language, a particularity of the author, the book chronicles aspects inherent to the current social, political, economic and cultural context of the country in general and of the northern Malanje Province in particular.

The referred book focuses on the reminiscences related to the myths and legends that marked his childhood, spent in the lands of the Giant Sable Antelope (Malanje).

With 200 pages, the book has 40 chronicles, some of them unpublished and others already published in the “O País” newspaper, with which the writer also seeks to draw attention to the experiences and teachings of the past and draw positive examples.

Edited by the UEA, this literary work has the preface of the journalist Luis Fernando and has an initial print of 1,500 copies.

João Rosa Santos has eight literary works in the market.
