Luiz Rufato made his literary debut with the collection of short stories Histórias de remorsos e rancores (1998), followed by Os sobreviventes (2000). He has been published widely in Brazil, Europe, and the US. Eles eram muitos cavalos (2001), Ruffato's first novel, was considered a new beginning in Brazilian narrative. Since then, he has published a five-book project called Inferno Provisório, depicting the post-1945 industrialization of Brazil. Luiz Ruffato has received virtually all the major Brazilian literary awards, and has been translated into English, French, Italian, and Spanish.
