Fora de mim
de Martha Medeiros

Martha Medeiros Autora do best-seller Divã, novela irônica e bem-humorada sobre uma mulher que enfrenta o fim de seu casamento arrastado em plena crise dos 40, Martha Medeiros faz agora de seus leitores testemunhas de outro momento, talvez mais crucial e terrível na relação amorosa — aquele em que a paixão acaba, por mais intensa que tenha sido. 

Em Fora de mim, a autora vai ainda mais fundo na descrição de sentimentos universais provocados por essa perda, comparada por ela a um acidente de avião, em que os sobreviventes “percebem a perda de altitude, a potência enfraquecida das turbinas e o desastre iminente, até que acontece a parada definitiva da aeronave, (...) e sobe do chão um silêncio absoluto, (...) a quietude amortizante de quem não respira, não pensa, não sente nada ainda.” 



Vinicius de Moraes
de Ricardo Cravo Albin

Ricardo Cravo Albin (Salvador, 20 de dezembro de 1940) é um musicólogo e autor brasileiro, sendo considerado um dos maiores pesquisadores da Música Popular Brasileira.

Cravo Albin fundou e dirigiu o Museu da Imagem e do Som (MIS) entre 1965 e 1971.

Historiador de MPB, produtor musical, produtor de rádio e televisão, crítico e comentarista, Albin foi ainda diretor geral da Embrafilme e presidente do Instituto Nacional de Cinema (INC). É também autor, desde 1973, de aproximadamente 2500 programas radiofônicos para a Rádio MEC.

Ricardo Cravo Albim apresentará na Feira Internacional do Livro de Miami o seu mais recente livro: Vinicius de Moraes, uma celebração de um dos maiores poetas em língua portuguesa, diplomata de carreira e um dos mais importantes compositores brasileiros. O livro representa um reconhecimento a sua enorme contribuição à divulgação da imagem do Brasil no exterior.

A apresentação dos dois escritores brasileiros na MBFI foi coordenada pelo Centro Cultural Brasil-USA da Flórida.
