The Bull Is Not Killed. It is the spring of 1974, a period of mounting political tension in Portugal. Luís da Silva, an unemployed university graduate and reluctant virgin, loiters aimlessly about the streets and beaches of an Algarve fishing village waiting for life to happen. Luís longs for the day when Portugal's repressive dictatorship will be overthrown and his country restored to its proper place in the world.

Born in London, Ontario, Canada, author Sarah Dearing attended journalism school, but decided she did not possess the proper instincts for the genre, preferring fiction. To pay the bills, she took a position in the film division of the Writers Guild of Canada, writing fiction in her free time. In 1981 she moved to Toronto's diverse, artsy Kensington Market area. The book tells of a recent university graduate, Luis, and a gypsy girl, Luisa, who meet in a chance encounter at the seaside.
