I am so excited to annonce that my book O Choro da Chuva (in Russian "Время дождя") which was translated to Portuguese and published in Brazil in 2019, will be presented by the Brazilian publishing house Pergunta Fixar at the famous festival SXSW in Austin, Texas-USA.
Hello Nour! Thank you for participating in my project “People and the City”. Let’s start from the very beginning. Can you please describe yourself just in a few words? Hi …
The book "O Choro da Chuva" has been published in Portuguese in the Brazilian publishing house Pergunta Fixar. Listen to the music of the city, and get acquainted with its mythical characters such as Rain man, Catcher of Music, A Magic Bird, a Dancing Girl, Europe & Asia, modern Tessey and Ariadna. Love and death, a star road, metro mazes, dreams and reality, the shining darkness of night, eroticism and innocence, wealth and poverty, tears and happiness, Christmas and spring - and all this with a light haze of rain.

Olga de Benoist set herself a task to portray "careless and shining Paris", the Paris, seen through the eyes of young hippies and hipsters, the darlings of fortune. Her characters love life, they know how to enjoy it and still they are obsessed with an existential pathos. Every now and then they say, "Who are we? Why do we live?" (Konstantin Grishine's literary review of the book The Age of Rain)
