 (1957) is a Brazilian author living in the United States. She is known for her prose fiction concerning urbanism, transnational migration, and animal rights. Before becoming a writer, she had worked with film, video and television. She earned the Jabuti prize for literature (1995) with her debut collection of short stories Arca sem Noé – Histórias do Edifício Copan, which was translated by Adria Frizzi and REYoung as Stories From the Copan Building, and included in the volume First World Third Class and Other Tales of the Global Mix (University of Texas Press). The most substantial segment in this volume is the title piece, a novel of discovery translated by David Coles and volume editor Charles A. Perrone. Analysts have underlined originality, wit and irony in her style. Rheda’s work has interested scholars of Inter-American literature, Latin American literature, literature of Brazil, women writers, post-humanism, and veganism.
