Praise

“Raucous . . . Rowdy . . . Outrageous!” —The New York Times

“Swift, funny, and occasionally even slapstick.” —Rivka Galchen, from the Introduction

“Part Virginia Woolf, part Weekend at Bernie’s . . . [An] excellent example of the particular mixture of folkloric elements and high-literary storytelling for which Amado is often paired with Gabriel García Márquez.” —The Wall Street Journal

“Hilarious… Deftly constructed… Hugely entertaining… Amado, like Quincas, is a hoaxer who loves to trick his readers….  [His] version of Brazil is seductive.” The Times Literary Supplement

“[A] comic masterpiece . . . Darkly hilarious . . . With brilliant sleight of hand and deceptive simplicity, Amado’s defiance of death in this frothy, heartfelt tale reveals the Brazilian master at his earthy, big-hearted best.” —Shelf Awareness
