Bye, Bye Soccer by Edilberto Coutinho
Translated by Wilson Loria
Written and published during the military dictatorship in Brazil, the stories in Bye, Bye Soccer are an example of literature of protest against the oppression to which even sport was subjected. Soccer serves as both an emblem of Brazilian pop culture and as a metaphor for the complex social battles that were being waged on Brazilian soil at the time. Although the context of these stories is decidedly Brazilian, the themes of resistance and determination are universal.
