More And Better
Free and Untouchable, Professor Frada
Professor Frada has published another book sponsored by the publishing house Clinfontur. The launching ceremony of the publication LIVRES E INTOCÁVEIS [Free and Untouchable] was held on June 21 in the Almedina bookshop, in the Atrium Saldanha.
It was also presented in the Lisbon Book Fair 2014, on June 7/8.
Professor Frada was born in Mira on May 8, 1947. He holds a degree in Medicine (FML), Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences (ISCSP) and History (FLL), a PhD in Medicine from the Faculty of Medicine, University of Lisbon. He is also a Practitioner and University Professor, lecturing at the Faculty of Medicine in Lisbon and the Atlântica University in Lisbon, the author of several books and around 40 scientific articles in the areas of Medical History, Anthropology and Ethnography, Local History, The Scientific Method, Poetry, Public Health and Political and Social Analysis.
In FREE AND UNTOUCHABLE, his second novel, the author transports us to imaginary spaces, particularly Aurora, in the Sierra Romana, where, through his characters, he develops, analyses and presents values and behaviours in a creative and extremely daring and critical manner, verging upon the scornful. In sociological and cultural terms, his considerations may be classified as radical and unorthodox.
The political direction of the government, especially the ensuing social infirmity, in addition to several controversies experienced in a mysterious and erotic environment are the main focus of the dialogues in this book. To live, feel and appreciate reality through fiction is, undoubtedly, one of the most fulfilling and secure ways of being able to discover a huge world of surprises and cathartic experiences that are crucial to one's affective and psychological equilibrium.
By becoming involved in the social and political experiences and in the intimacy of the intense amorous liaisons of the main characters, the readers will be given the opportunity to alienate themselves and relieve their most intimate traumas, furies, anxieties and desires.
