Product Description

Review

Mr. Brandao demonstrates both daring and an admirable facility in writing serious fiction in the form of the folhetim, the pulp serials that are popular for their slangy tone.

A wild, surreal novel, vulgar, funny, self-conscious, painful. It is done in short takes, each with a headline; a kitchen sink kind of book, envisioning the hideous nature of life under a repressive regime of the 1960s. --E. L. Doctorow

This Brazilian novel uses exuberant exaggeration, unusual typographical layout, and artful juxtaposition of seemingly unrelated information to build a sharp denunciation of dictatorship . . . Very much tongue-in-cheek, this novel is entertaining despite the serious message underneath.

About the Author

Ignacio de Loyola Brandao began his career writing film reviews and went on to work for one of the principal newspapers in Sao Paulo. Initially banned in Brazil, his novel Zero went on to win the prestigious Brasilia Prize and become a controversial bestseller. Brandao is the author of more than a half-dozen works of fiction, including Zero, Teeth Under the Sun, Angel of Death, and The Good-Bye Angel.

A native of Massachusetts, Nelson Vieira has studied in Brazil and Portugal. He is a Professor of Portuguese & Brazilian Studies and Judaic Studies at Brown University.
