Matt from Mountain*7 is off to the Cape Verde Islands next week:

Here's the thing though: I've dug around and found very little in terms of translated literature. There's the recently published The Last Will and Testament of Senhor da Silva Araújo by Germano Almeida (thanks to the Complete Review for this) but seemingly very little else. The Islands are well known for their thriving literary and poetry scene but I can't seem to find anything else that is readily available - anyone got any nuggets of wisdom out there, on this or any other aspect of the culture and history?

    Appears I wasn't the only one who hit lots of brick walls on this - there genuinely doesn't seem to be much available in translation at all. Hopefully this will change. Thanks for the enquiry though!
