| The Story
THE EX-MAGICIAN FROM THE MINHOTA TAVERN, by Murilo Rubião, narrates the story of a world-weary magician willingly lapses into becoming a civil servant as the sole recourse to embracing death by divesting himself off his gift of magical powers, which otherwise came in the way of his attempts at committing suicide.
"From a sad man I heard that to be a civil servant was to commit suicide little by little. I was in no condition to determine which form of suicide was best suited to me: slow or quick. As a result, I took a job in the Department of State" (EM, 112)
