Milton Hatoum’s Dois irmãos (Two Brothers) | Nomadic Permanence: Rob Packer’s Blog
Jul 29, Murat G. Yai, hikayeyi 2 kez okumakta fayda var. Last in first out mu? The text is based on popular Brazilian novelist Milton Hatoum’s novel Brothers, and is set krmaos Manaus, where Hatoum was born and grew up.
Hatoum’s father was Lebanese, and thus had occasion to think about living bi-culturally. The novel is multi-generational, and is essentially about the passionate interrelations of one family. This one is far darker, almost an opposite in immediate effects, with more anger and violence, jealousy, deception, loss, but it is still passionate about love and sex and family and loss.
Dois Irmãos by Fábio Moon (4 star ratings)
The mother is central in this story, siding with the wild brother over the accomplished one. The plot’s really too complicated for me to relate here, but if you want to know more, there’re a lot of reviews to look at to help you with that. I love the attention to how the story is narrated, from the perspective of the caretaker Dominga’s son.
I also like the way it ends, sort of open. It’s a big, multi-generational, irmaks of natoum swirl of emotions, where I think the drama of the story is matched by the dramatic and wonderful art, which alone might make it a 5.
I don’t usually love books with a scope this wide, and none of the characters are particularly likable, but this is really admirable art and may be seen as in the canon of great works of this time of an explosion of graphic novels, the golden age. I think there’s hatoim like it anywhere else.

A good comic that isn’t capes and tights, but about two twin brothers and a family. Two Brothers did not take me through as personal of a journey as Daytripper did, but it remains a powerful example of how creators can truly engage the reader and push comics well beyond the panels on each page.

This is the story of Lebonese immigrants who settled in Brazil and stared t a family against the wishes of the husband.
The twins that are born become the centre of everything, with every character spiraling into misery around the relationships that the twins are expected to have versus the reality of their very haoum personalities and the unbalanced love that separated them at a young age. A lot of assumptions are made about twins, such as the belief that they ought to get along, but this story defies that. It is not a happy story, which may make it a very difficult read for some, but I do not shy away from bittersweet endings and difficult reads.
A ravishing comics version of a complex and troubling family saga. I love what this book shows me about its Brazilian cultural setting, and love its lush, fully realized world.
It’s an elliptical, sometimes confounding read, populated by many multidimensional characters and marked by some dizzying turns of plot. At times I couldn’t quite distinguish some of the characters, or follow some of the unseen off-panel action; at times I longed to know more about the political history alluded to.
Re-r A ravishing comics version of a complex and troubling family saga. Re-reading will definitely help — I do hagoum to re-read it! Lovely, transporting comics, very literary, very steeped in Brazilian life irmaoss geography, and atmospheric. You can see author Hatoum’s love of Faulkner here.
Dois Irmaos de Milton Hatoum
The future, this never-ending fallacy. Excellent depictions of Brazil.
Definitely a nice addition to the graphic novel genre. Reviewed at No Flying, No Tights. This is a dous of an adaptation of a Brazilian novel about twin brothers who hate each other, and the family that surrounds them that is just as dysfunctional the mother likes one son and not the other, the father never wanted children, one of the brothers had a son with the maid and that son isn’t sure which brother is his biological father.
It’s a terrific story, but it might be losing something in the translation to doiz novel, in that it took place in the Arab immigrant community This is a translation of an adaptation of a Brazilian novel about twin brothers who hate each other, and the family that surrounds them that is just as dysfunctional the mother likes one son and not the other, the father never wanted children, one of the brothers had a son with the maid and that son isn’t sure which brother is his biological father.
It’s a terrific story, but it might be losing something in the translation to graphic novel, in that it took place in the Arab immigrant community in Brazil in the s and ‘s and I know nothing about the politics of that time, so whenever it was mentioned in passing I hwtoum a little lost.
The art style, which was coincidentally done by two brothers, is great but I had trouble telling the female hafoum apart. Thank goodness one of the brothers had a prominent facial scar. I loved the art. The story is intense, but felt so real. I enjoyed reading this graphic novel. Ps this story reminded me of how great those Brazilian novelas were. This particularly reminded me of Brazilian irmao Renascer i watched it dubbed in Yatoum. Kabuslarimiz ise tamamen bize ait. Hatouum 23, Marcos Kopschitz rated it really liked it Shelves: Jul 19, Suzydumeur rated it really liked it.
I really need more of a 10 point scale or a. This is probably closer to a 4. The problem is that the twin brothers Moon and Ba were so excellent on Daytripper that I know they can be better, but had they not done Daytripper this would be perfect. I think it is also that this is not their original work and story, and they just used an old Brazilian story. I loved loved loved the art.
The story, a convoluted tale of irmzos family of few likeable characters, was at times hard to follow. However, I enjoyed the tone and atmosphere of the book, as well as the captivating setting of Manaus. I hope to read the book that this graphic novel inspired. When its Fabio and Iraos we are talking about one does not need to say much, they are masters at this.
Man, this family is terrible to each other. But twins writing and illustrating a story about twins that hate each other – well that’s just fascinating on a meta level. Two Brothers has everything a good novel should have, backed up by some sumptuous black and white illustrations that capture a historical Manaus in an unforgettable way.
The brotherly pair responsible for this reimagining of novelist, Milton Hatoum’s, work have created a special piece of homage and retelling. Having never read the original I can’t say if they have improved it at all A multi-generational tale about twins separated in Two Brothers has everything a good novel should have, backed up by some sumptuous black and white illustrations that capture a historical Manaus in an unforgettable way.
A multi-generational tale about twins separated in their youth, both geographically and emotionally, Two Brother’s had me captivated, entertained and moved throughout.
Although the novel centres around the twins, one a successful money maker in Sao Paolo the other a lay-about drunkard and romancer who never really leaves home, the novel has a great cast of interesting characters, all brilliantly drawn to capture their personalities and hatou, subtlties of their emotions – Moon and Ba don’t overtell here, leaving the artwork and the reader to complete the complex characters and their motives. In particular the twins are clouded in uncertainty as to what they really feel about each other.
The clever choice of narrator the illegimate son of the adopted Indian girl who works in the family home adds to the careful air of mystery, leaving blanks that the irmzos cannot tell themselves, while mysteries themselves never become overwhelming or hwtoum essential to the plot.
There irmaoos a irjaos tension between the older couple, mother and father, between their fiery romance and the children that changed their relationship. The mother clutching at her son, refusing to let him go, is a familiar plotline but done very well here. Similarly, the father’s jealous resentment, the disappointment he feels, is subtly done, shown through his relationship with irmaoss maybe grandson.
Other characters come and go but Manaus is often hatou star of the show. The illustrations of the riverside scenes, the docks, the streets and the family home that crumbles and fades as the story goes on are beautiful, complex and captivating.
The effects is like something out of an Isabel Allende novel or a Dostoevsky family tragedy, historical, serious, achingly real and a touch of magic brought about by the beauty of the setting and the sadness of a crumbling family. The ending is fittingly strong and vague – Ba and Moon’s final illustrations in the shell of the old house and gardens, the space where one of the twins stood, creates a haunting final impression and had me flicking back through the book to some of the most memorable scenes.
I only realised afterwards that the story was an adaptation.
As an original work I would have been more impressed, but I’ll come back to that impression after reading the original. Still, a great example that answers the question “Why graphic novels?
This is a brilliant piece of storytelling and art rolled into one. I’ve only read a few graphic novels that don’t have anything to do with superheroes.
The story is an atmospheric, cross-generational family saga that would appeal to fans of Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Isabel Allende. The central setting is the family’s gothic mansion in Manaus, Brazil, and there are deep secrets and patterns of I’ve only read a few graphic novels that don’t have anything to do with superheroes.
The central setting is the family’s gothic mansion in Manaus, Brazil, and there are deep secrets and patterns of behaviour that repeat throughout the decades. The bits of prose that are translated into English in the word boxes are hauntingly poetic, and the stylistic artwork becomes a familiar, fully-developed world.
I’m docking one star because I felt the quarrel between the siblings was not fully developed, in character psychology terms. The peripheral characters were much more interesting than the two brothers around whom they revolved. The atmosphere of the Brazilian city of Manaus is developed vividly.
You can feel yourself in the steaming jungle heat with the smells of coffee and the sounds of Samba in the background. I recommend this graphic novel to any reader interested in great international literature in translation. You’ll quickly find yourself addicted to the book’s densely atmospheric quality as you journey along the decades with vividly imagined characters.
There are few better stories in history than the rivalry between brothers.
