S1 E9: "Readiness Is All." Luciana Villas-Boas & Anna Luiza Cardoso Talk about Brazil's Publishing Industry, and Life, during these Challenging Times

For this episode I am talking to not one but two guests, Luciana Villas-Boas and Anna Luiza Cardoso from the Villas-Boas & Moss Literary Agency & Consultancy in Brazil. 
Luciana Villas-Boas founded her literary agency in 2012, just one year after 2 Seas Agency was launched. Yet we knew each other from before, when I was working in French publishing and Luciana was editorial director at Editora Record. I have the feeling that our agencies kind of grew up together, as we started working together right away: Villas-Boas & Moss to represent our catalog into Brazil, and 2 Seas to represent their catalogue in the English language, the Netherlands and Scandinavia.
It’s always a pleasure to catch up with Luciana. I’m happy that she and Anna Luiza, who is junior partner at the agency, are joining me today to discuss the unfortunately not so bright-looking picture of the Brazilian publishing industry, and the turbulent times we are going through.
