In this volume Niemeyer discuses books and the authors, he enjoys reading. Brazil and Rio de Janeiro (especially the sea view from his office windows) that he always misses when he spends a lot of time away. It is a diary that offers the reader a view of Niemeyer as an architect, artist, writer, creator, citizen and friend.  Sensitivity and nostalgia are the ingredients of this literary work in which Oscar Niemeyer reveals himself to be a versatile storyteller. He writes and illustrated the book, creating a flowing autobiographical text. He talks about his childhood, his grandparents and the adventures of his younger years.
