In the Brazilian literary scene, a new voice emerges with strength and sensitivity: writer and journalist Marcos Morelli presents his first work of fiction, titled “How Many Wars Can Fit in the Same Heart?”, which is already available for purchase on the Opera Editorial website.

“How Many Wars Can Fit in the Same Heart?” is now available for sale

The plot, which delves deeply into the complexities of love and human relationships, revolves around Adriano, the protagonist of the book, who faces a surprising twist in his life. The discovery that Eduardo, his great love from adolescence, is his new neighbor in the apartment in São Paulo, opens old wounds and initiates a whirlwind of emotions. The problem is that now Eduardo is married, complicating this unexpected reconnection even further.

The story of Adriano and Eduardo is not just a common tale of lost and found love, but a profound reflection on the complexities of human relationships. “Since the pre-sale started, many people have approached me to share stories similar to the one in the synopsis. That impressed me. Although it’s fiction, it’s something that can happen to anyone. There’s a reader identification with what is being told,” Morelli reveals.

A graduate in journalism, a field in which he has been active for over twenty years, Marcos Morelli has also considered himself a musician and writer from an early age. National and international authors such as Caio Fernando Abreu, Alexandre Vidal Porto, João Silvério Trevisan, Reinaldo Arenas, and Édouard Louis serve as references for his writing, especially in this trilogy.

Currently, Morelli is a student of the Free Writers’ Preparation Course (Clipe) at Casa das Rosas, a public initiative that has been in existence for ten years, selecting candidates annually. He has released two digital books on Amazon. The first, in 2016, was “33”, a book about music, and the second, in 2017, was “Eu Não Tenho as Roupas Adequadas (I Don’t Have the Right Clothes)”. Together, in recent years, they have sold 200 digital copies. He also contributed to printed anthologies by the Portuguese publisher Chiado Books and the Off Flip Seal.

In 2023, there is also the planned release of another fiction, to be announced soon by another publisher, as well as the participation with an original text in a printed anthology of short stories about new legends. The author’s text was selected in a national competition.
