The understated tragic memoirs of a 19th century Brazilian man are filtered through subtle irony and amusing philosophy to produce a comic brushing aside of the incidentals of life. He seems to laugh even at death.
Original and entertaining in both subject and structure, the novel has a playful beauty but also a strong cynicism. Recommended.
