Synopsis

A progenitor of twentieth-century Latin American fiction, Joaquim Maria Machado de Assis (1839-1908), was hailed in his lifetime as Brazil's greatest writer. This majestic translation combines all his short-story collections appearing in his lifetime and reintroduces de Assis as a literary giant who must be integrated into the world literary canon.

Staff Choice

Occasionally a publication comes along that feels like an event, a book that should immediately form part of every reader's library. This is one such book. Arguably responsible for putting Brazilian fiction on the map, Machado de Assis produced a diverse body of work, notable for its inventiveness. Whether you work your way from cover to cover or dip in at random points, this collection perfectly showcases his manifold talents.
