Product Details

Praise

“Amado was writing to save his country’s soul. . . . The scenes where the captains of the sands manage to fool the rich of the city and get away with it would have made Henry Fielding or Charles Dickens proud.” —Colm Tóibín, from the Introduction

“Indispensable . . . if you want to feel the intensity of life on the streets of Salvador.” —Itamar Vieira Junior, The New York Times

“Amado is Brazil’s most illustrious and venerable novelist.”—The New York Times

“Brazil’s leading man of letters . . .  Amado is adored around the world!” —Newsweek
