This is a truly exceptional novel from a modern author who really deals with the difficulties of living in modern Brazil. As we follow the narrator's complex life over a few days, Buarque exposes the gulf that was created between the upper and middle classes after the demolition of the dictatorship, revealing gross inadequacies in a society that is no longer capable of maintaining itself. This is a fabulous novel, simply but expertly written and Buarque's examination of the consequences of the fall of the dictatorship is a real eye-opener.
