This is one of the best books I ever read.,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Posthumous Memoirs of Bras Cubas (Library of Latin America) (Hardcover)
I am a Brazilian professor and I read in English, Spanish, Italian and French. I rate this book with the best novels of Flaubert, Mann, Lampedusa, Dickens, Balzac and others. It is a superb account of life in 19th Century Rio de Janeiro, a masterpiece of a writer whose only sin was writing in an almost unknown language: portuguese!
