This vital collection is as eclectic and electric as Brazil itself. These stories — ranging from vignettes, sketches, and prose poems to traditional narratives — cover a wide geography, physically, thematically, and stylistically. Tales of nature and magic, humor and tragedy, brutality and delicacy, sex and violence are played out against every corner of this vast and diverse land: the Amazon, the Northeast, the Central West, and the South, as well as in Brazil’s two metropolises, Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. The earliest story, Machado de Assis’ “The Wallet,” was written at the end of the nineteenth century. The most recent were written especially for this book. Brazil is noted for its vibrant music and celebrations; this book shows an equally rich literary scene for the traveler or fan of world — and world-class — fiction.

Alexis Levitin is a recipient of two NEA translation fellowships and two Fulbright Lectureships, as well as residencies at the Banff International Literary Translation Centre, The European Translators Collegium in Germany, and The Ford Foundation retreat at Bellagio, Italy. His translations have appeared in more than two hundred magazines, including Kenyon Review, New England Review, Partisan Review, Prairie Schooner, New Letters, and American Poetry Review.
