Machado de Assis (1839-1908) is considered the pre-eminent writer of Brazil, but his work has only recently become known to the English-speaking world. This new translation of Posthumous Memoirs of Brás Cubas, first published in 1881, now brings Machado de Assis's sardonic wit and keen appreciation of human foibles to a much larger audience.
Readership: A general audience and students interested in Latin American story and literature.
