You can read my short story "Cracolándia" online at Kenyon Review. 

Remember that boy who juggled côcos in the centro, the one who killed his sister and her man? No matter what the cops said, I always believed he was innocent. You see, I watched those kids grow up. Othoniel de Fogo, his big sister Arminda, their best friend Edvaldo. Those three were a pázhino—together, noon or night.
