This chapter discusses the ways in which João Paulo Borges Coelho’s widely acknowledged talent creating literary works that conjugate global and local can also illuminate the connection between postcolonial memory and world-literature. Through an analysis of this 2013 novel Rainhas da Noite, we argue that his nuanced representation of colonialism through memory operates a critique of postcolonial societies that is inherently transnational and systemic.
