Product description

Review

An exceptionally vivid picture of Brazilian high society... an absorbing, if bitter, meditation on Brazil --Sunday Telegraph

Chico Buarque is at the forefront of a new wave of writing that should make you rethink everything you thought you knew about South American literature. When I finished reading Budapest my face ached from smiling at its ingenuity, its audacity, its freshness, its line-by-line effulgence, its irresistible narrative momentum. --Jonathan Franzen

I read Spilt Milk in a single night, awed and deeply moved. Buarque has breathed the story of a whole country into a single, unforgettable man with a soul as big as Brazil. But he's also written one of the saddest love stories, and one of the truest. --Nicole Krauss

About the Author

Born 1944 in Rio de Janeiro, Chico Buarque, is a singer, guitarist, composer, dramatist, writer and poet. Although he first made his name as a musician, in 1968 Buarque was imprisoned by the Brazilian dictatorship for writing and composing the existential play Roda Viva. During the 1970s and 1980s, he collaborated with other atists in protest against the dictatorship. He is the author of numerous novels; in 2010 Spilt Milk won both of brazil's leading literary prizes, the Prêmio Jabuti and the Prêmio Portugal Telecom. He lives in Rio de Janeiro.
