Tough Love

 

 

 

 

 

 

by Noga Sklar

A legal immigrant from Brazil tells her daily experiences in the United States, as her homeland plunges into an unprecedented political and economic crisis, which culminates in the impeachment of the president. Meanwhile, she struggles to settle down in the U.S., working in both countries at the same time — through the internet — and building a house in South Carolina. In the background, history writes itself between terrorist attacks and Donald Trump’s political trajectory toward the presidency. With a sharp wit and a strong ironic tone, Noga Sklar is a popular writer in Brazil, where she is well-know as a “cronista”.
