Traboulsi expertly turns the theme of social deprivation into character-led fiction, and handles tragedy and city life with equal affection' - Financial Times'A new author with an extraordinarily fresh voice' - Amanda Hopkinson, Independent'Yasmina Traboulsi's Bahia Blues is an eccentric tale about the impact of a stranger on the poor but happy residents of a square in Salvador, Brazil.

Great, short read 12 Dec 2014

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was looking for a book to read about urban Brazilian and ran across this book on some publisher's "Top 10" Brazilian reads list. I found it to be a very engaging, well-written book with multiple characters and storylines that mesh together artfully, without running to hundreds of pages. Great, short read.
