Each story in Krowd Review #2 – The Spring Edition is a wild journey in its own particular way.

Spring is here, and the second edition of Krowd Review is is dedicated to hummingbirds and other exotic fauna from the Brazilian lowlands, as lyrically reflected in the wildly flowered, exquisite prose of one of the most important Brazilian contributors to world literature, João Guimarães Rosa, beautifully analyzed by Bernardo Marçolla and translated by Noga Sklar.
Moreover, KBR’s senior advisor Alan Sklar once said that “art has a random element that comes from the unintended, the collective unconscious. It is magic, it is the universe talking through you.” Therefore, not by coincidence, as I was working with this special edition I was not surprised to realize that the Chinese character for “spring” is also the one for “life, love and lust.”
