Remo: the autobiography of remo fernandes
Remo Fernandes is a much-loved Goan institution, and his memoir serves up a fascinating slice of Goa’s social history. The book will be a treat for all his fans around the world.’
– AMITAV GHOSH
From the opening chapter of his autobiography, Remo takes us on a journey of kaleidoscopic images from his memories of childhood, growing up in Goa. I can smell the streets, the cooking, the sea and the feni as my own memories return to me through his words.
He tells the story of his passions and adventures in music and the arts in an educated but entertaining way. His love of his roots and his strong ties to his homeland give this book authority and charm in abundance, all written in excellent English but with the spicy additions of Portuguese and Indian words and phrases for context.
