Sobre o livro:
Em seu novo romance, O PUNHO E A RENDA — que já vem sendo considerado uma obra-prima da ficção política e seu mais importante trabalho —, Edgar Telles Ribeiro, escritor e diplomata, mergulha nos bastidores das embaixadas, revelando suas tensões e disputas. Não se trata, porém, do rendilhado charmoso da vida social das rodas diplomáticas — Edgard abre, pela primeira vez no Brasil, uma caixa preta: tendo como tema a ditadura brasileira e as formas de opressão que o sistema gerou no período do regime militar (1964-1985), a obra revela os subterrâneos sinistros da Operação Condor e lida com os grupos de direita que atuaram dentro do Itamaraty nessa época. Aborda complôs para derrubar governos, cumplicidades com torturas, a sede de subir na carreira.
