Translated from the Portuguese by John L. Taylor & William L. Grossman. (original title: Gabriela, cravo e cancela, 1958 - Livraria Martins Editora). keywords: Literature Translated Brazil Latin America. inventory # 947. FROM THE PUBLISHER - GABRIELA came to llhéus from the backlands of Brazil, one of a flock of dirty, bedraggled migrant workers. Nacib, owner of the town’s most popular café, was so desperate to replace his cook that he hired Gabriela immediately. She soon proved to be not only an excellent chef, but—once scrubbed and decently clothed—a great beauty as well. And Nacib found himself owner of the most prosperous business and the most sought-after woman in town. ‘Enchanting,’ The Atlantic Monthly Press called Gabriela, the charm of this story is its pace and verisimilitude. a comedy vivid, believable, and entertaining.’. Jorge Amado de Faria (August 10, 1912 - August 6, 2001) was a Brazilian writer of the Modernist school. He was the best-known of modern Brazilian writers, his work having been translated into some 30 languages and popularized in film, notably Dona Flor and her Two Husbands (Dona Flor e Seus Dois Maridos) in 1978. His work dealt largely with the poor urban black and mulatto communities of Bahia. Amado was born in a fazenda (‘farm’) in the inland of the city of Itabuna, in the southern part of the Brazilian state of Bahia, son of João Amado de Faria and D. Eulália Leal. The farm Amado was born in was precisely located on the village of Ferradas, which though today is a district of Itabuna, at the time was administered by the town of Ilhéus. That is why he considered himself a citizen of Ilhéus. In the large cocoa plantation, Amado knew the misery and the struggles of the people working the earth, living in almost slave conditions, which were to be a theme always present in his later works (for example, the notable Terras do Sem Fim of 1944). When he was only one year old the family moved to Ilhéus, a coastal city, where he spent his childhood. He attended high school in Salvador, the capital of the state. During that period Amado began to collaborate with several magazines and took part in literary life, as one of the founders of the Modernist ‘Rebels’ Academy’. Amado published his first novel, O País do Carnaval, in 1931, at age 18. Later he married Matilde Garcia Rosa and had a daughter, Lila, in 1933. The same year he published his second novel, Cacau, which increased his popularity. Amado’s leftist activities made his life difficult under the dictatorial regime of Getulio Vargas: in 1935 he was arrested for the first time, and two years later his books were publicly burned. His works were banned from Portugal, but in the rest of Europe he gained great popularity with the publication of Jubiabá in France. The book had enthusiastic reviews, including that of Nobel Prize Award winner Albert Camus. Being a militant, from 1941 to 1942 Amado was compelled to go into exile to Argentina and Uruguay. When he returned to Brazil he separated from Matilde Garcia Rosa. In 1945 he was elected to the National Constituent Assembly, as a representative of the Brazilian Communist Party (PCB) (he received more votes than any other candidate in the state of São Paulo). He signed a law granting freedom of religious faith. The same year he remarried, this time to the writer Zélia Gattai. In 1947 he had a son, João Jorge. The same year his party was declared illegal, and its members arrested and persecuted. Amado chose exile once again, this time in France, where he remained until he was expelled in 1950. His first daughter, Lila, had died in 1949. From 1950 to 1952 Amado lived in Czechoslovakia, where another daughter, Paloma, was born. He also travelled to the Soviet Union, winning the Stalin Peace Prize in 1951. On his return to Brazil in 1955, Amado abandoned active politi. Bookseller Inventory # 947

FROM THE PUBLISHER - RIO. 1940. Full of ambition and hot air, an arrogant, pompous, and cruel Nazi colonel was conspiring to occupy a vacant chair in the Brazilian Academy of Letters. Add to this outrage, this rank defilement, the fact that he wanted the very seat recently vacated by celebrated poet Antonio Bruno, a lover of many women and one city, Paris, whose fall to the Germans had killed him as decisively as a Fascist bullet in the heart. But what force on earth could keep the colonel’s fat bottom from resting on a velvet seat of the Immortal Forty? It would take an audacious plan spawned by the cunning minds of two ageing academicians. the irresistible sexuality of the women Bruno had loved. and a will to win against the odds-in Jorge Amado’s wonderful, high-spirited tale full of satire and broad humor that reaches back through the mock-heroic tradition to carry a message of hope and courage for the battles of today.

Thinking she’s now a rich, respectable widow, her mercenary family welcomes her with open arms.

FROM THE PUBLISHER - CHOCOLATE GOLD. The siren-song of the lush, cocoa-growing forests of Bahia lures them all-the adventurers, the assassins, the gamblers, the brave and beautiful women. It is not a gentle song, but a song of greed, madness, and blood. It is a song that promises riches untold, or death for the price of a swig of rum, a song most cannot resist-until it is too late-not Margot, the golden blonde prostitute who comes for love; not Cabral, the talented, unscrupulous lawyer who works for one of the cacao colonels’; and not Juca, whose ruthless quest to reap the jungle’s harvest plants the seeds of his own destruction. Against the violent, colorful backdrop of Brazil’s ‘cacao-rush-a phenomenon that rivals California’s gold rush in drama, tragedy, and humor-Jorge Amado weaves together the fates of two landowning families involved in a bloody feud over a tract of virgin forest to which neither has a rightful claim. In his foreword to this edition, the author has written, ‘No other of my books is as dear to me; in it lie my roots; it is of the blood from which I was created. .’.

Here in SEA OF DEATH are the sea’s unconquerable mysteries and the robust yearnings of seafaring men- a world of storms and smugglers, of reckless passion and star-crossed love. Set in Amado’s lush Bahia, Brazil, in the early 1930s, SEA OF DEATH tells the story of Guma and Livia, lovers whose triumphs and tribulations mirror the dark imperatives of the world around them. ‘The men from dockside only have one path in life,’ Amado writes, ‘the path of the sea. They follow it, it’s their fate.

After a merry decade of dissipation and revelry among the bums, the pimps, and the prostitutes, Quincas Wateryell, king of the voluptuous lowlife of Bahia, dies. His prim family loses no time in rechaining the corpse to the yoke of respectability. But even in his tight clothes and middle-class coffin, Quincas still sneers at them. And when four of his cronies and a bottle of rum arrive at the wake and take over the vigil. Quincas decides the party might be too good to miss. Once again, Jorge Amado, the man The New York Times has called ‘the most significant of contemporary Brazilian novelists,’ magnificently evokes the raw and raunchy flavor of Bahia, and serves up the spirited notion that all is not over when all is over. Jorge Amado de Faria (August 10, 1912 - August 6, 2001) was a Brazilian writer of the Modernist school. He was the best-known of modern Brazilian writers, his work having been translated into some 30 languages and popularized in film, notably Dona Flor and her Two Husbands (Dona Flor e Seus Dois Maridos) in 1978. His work dealt largely with the poor urban black and mulatto communities of Bahia. Amado was born in a fazenda (‘farm’) in the inland of the city of Itabuna, in the southern part of the Brazilian state of Bahia, son of João Amado de Faria and D. Eulália Leal. The farm Amado was born in was precisely located on the village of Ferradas, which though today is a district of Itabuna, at the time was administered by the town of Ilhéus. That is why he considered himself a citizen of Ilhéus. In the large cocoa plantation, Amado knew the misery and the struggles of the people working the earth, living in almost slave conditions, which were to be a theme always present in his later works (for example, the notable Terras do Sem Fim of 1944).

Amado’s leftist activities made his life difficult under the dictatorial regime of Getulio Vargas: in 1935 he was arrested for the first time, and two years later his books were publicly burned. His works were banned from Portugal, but in the rest of Europe he gained great popularity with the publication of Jubiabá in France. The book had enthusiastic reviews, including that of Nobel Prize Award winner Albert Camus. Being a militant, from 1941 to 1942 Amado was compelled to go into exile to Argentina and Uruguay. When he returned to Brazil he separated from Matilde Garcia Rosa. In 1945 he was elected to the National Constituent Assembly, as a representative of the Brazilian Communist Party (PCB) (he received more votes than any other candidate in the state of São Paulo). He signed a law granting freedom of religious faith. The same year he remarried, this time to the writer Zélia Gattai. In 1947 he had a son, João Jorge. The same year his party was declared illegal, and its members arrested and persecuted. Amado chose exile once again, this time in France, where he remained until he was expelled in 1950. His first daughter, Lila, had died in 1949. From 1950 to 1952 Amado lived in Czechoslovakia, where another daughter, Paloma, was born. He also travelled to the Soviet Union, winning the Stali.

FROM THE PUBLISHER - ‘MAGIC AT WORK’ - Saturday Review. On the Bahian waterfront the days are sun-blazed and languorous, the nights are filled with the struggles of men and the caresses of women—and only the prostitutes hold regular jobs. SHEPHERDS OF THE NIGHT is. ‘an epic journey into passion, music, gambling, a bit of fighting and all manner of discursive side trips. it ripples with the special inner music that has made Amado’s work popular the world over. Like all Amado’s novels, this one is filled with the coppery women of Bahia and the men who chase them through nights of song and stars.’ – Time. Jorge Amado de Faria (August 10, 1912 - August 6, 2001) was a Brazilian writer of the Modernist school. He was the best-known of modern Brazilian writers, his work having been translated into some 30 languages and popularized in film, notably Dona Flor and her Two Husbands (Dona Flor e Seus Dois Maridos) in 1978. His work dealt largely with the poor urban black and mulatto communities of Bahia. Amado was born in a fazenda (‘farm’) in the inland of the city of Itabuna, in the southern part of the Brazilian state of Bahia, son of João Amado de Faria and D. Eulália Leal. The farm Amado was born in was precisely located on the village of Ferradas, which though today is a district of Itabuna, at the time was administered by the town of Ilhéus. That is why he considered himself a citizen of Ilhéus. In the large cocoa plantation, Amado knew the misery and the struggles of the people working the earth, living in almost slave conditions, which were to be a theme always present in his later works (for example, the notable Terras do Sem Fim of 1944). When he was only one year old the family moved to Ilhéus, a coastal city, where he spent his childhood. He attended high school in Salvador, the capital of the state. During that period Amado began to collaborate with several magazines and took part in literary life, as one of the founders of the Modernist ‘Rebels’ Academy’. Amado published his first novel, O País do Carnaval, in 1931, at age 18. Later he married Matilde Garcia Rosa and had a daughter, Lila, in 1933. The same year he published his second novel, Cacau, which increased his popularity.

He also travelled to the Soviet Union, winning the Stalin Peace Prize in 1951. On his return to Brazil in 1955, Amado abandoned active political life, leaving the Communist Party one year later: from that period on he dedicated himself solely to literature. His second creat.

Amado’s powerful new novel of emancipation and betrayal, set in Bahia in the early 1930s, pulses with the exotic tropical imaginings and passionate desires that have made Amado internationally renowned. JUBIABA is the story of Antonio Balduino, a street urchin who abandons a desperate life as a champion circus boxer and a balladeer to join the local workers in their struggle against oppression. The spirit of JIJBIABA, the medicine man who inspires Antonio in his youth, follows Antonio’s physical and spiritual odyssey through tragedy and despair, teaching him to ‘love all those. .who were shaking off the fetters of slavery.’ ‘Amado’s strange and wonderful characters. his humanism, and his considerable powers of description’ result in a richness and warmth that are impossible to resist.’ - Washington Post. ‘Amado is Brazil’s most illustrious and venerable novelist.’ - New York Times.

FROM THE PUBLISHER - What a fine world this would be if a swallow could tall in love with a stray cat and the two of them could live happily ever after. In this marvelous dreamworld there is no prejudice at all between creatures or people high and low Jorge Amado, the internationally best-selling Brazilian novelist has written a delightful fable that could become the favorite gift between star-crossed lovers everywhere. Although this is indeed a fantasy in which Dawn and Morning and Spring and The Wind are memorable characters along with Miss Swallow and the Striped Cat the Reverend Parrot and the Old Owl, Amado fans will be cheered by the same storyteller’s art, the wild imagination, the lusty humor, and the philosophical asides of the master himself. Jorge Amado brings a richness of meaning to the simple tale of long ago when the Swallow and the Tom Cat fell in love. Jorge Amado de Faria (August 10, 1912 - August 6, 2001) was a Brazilian writer of the Modernist school. He was the best-known of modern Brazilian writers, his work having been translated into some 30 languages and popularized in film, notably Dona Flor and her Two Husbands (Dona Flor e Seus Dois Maridos) in 1978. His work dealt largely with the poor urban black and mulatto communities of Bahia. Amado was born in a fazenda (‘farm’) in the inland of the city of Itabuna, in the southern part of the Brazilian state of Bahia, son of João Amado de Faria and D. Eulália Leal. The farm Amado was born in was precisely located on the village of Ferradas, which though today is a district of Itabuna, at the time was administered by the town of Ilhéus. That is why he considered himself a citizen of Ilhéus. In the large cocoa plantation, Amado knew the misery and the struggles of the people working the earth, living in almost slave conditions, which were to be a theme always present in his later works (for example, the notable Terras do Sem Fim of 1944). When he was only one year old the family moved to Ilhéus, a coastal city, where he spent his childhood. He attended high school in Salvador, the capital of the state. During that period Amado began to collaborate with several magazines and took part in literary life, as one of the founders of the Modernist ‘Rebels’ Academy’. Amado published his first novel, O País do Carnaval, in 1931, at age 18. Later he married Matilde Garcia Rosa and had a daughter, Lila, in 1933. The same year he published his second novel, Cacau, which increased his popularity. Amado’s leftist activities made his life difficult under the dictatorial regime of Getulio Vargas: in 1935 he was arrested for the first time, and two years later his books were publicly burned. His works were banned from Portugal, but in the rest of Europe he gained great popularity with the publication of Jubiabá in France. The book had enthusiastic reviews, including that of Nobel Prize Award winner Albert Camus. Being a militant, from 1941 to 1942 Amado was compelled to go into exile to Argentina and Uruguay. When he returned to Brazil he separated from Matilde Garcia Rosa. In 1945 he was elected to the National Constituent Assembly, as a representative of the Brazilian Communist Party (PCB) (he received more votes than any other candidate in the state of São Paulo). He signed a law granting freedom of religious faith. The same year he remarried, this time to the writer Zélia Gattai. In 1947 he had a son, João Jorge. The same year his part.

Item Description: Knopf, 1945. hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good.No Dustjacket. 1st Edition. New York. 1945. Knopf. 1st American Edition. Very Good.No Dustjacket. 333 pages. hardcover. Translated from the Portuguese by Samuel Putnam. Originally published in Portuguese in Brazil as Terras do sem fim by Livaria Martins Editora in 1943. keywords: Literature Translated Brazil Latin America. inventory # 16427. FROM THE PUBLISHER - THE VIOLENT LAND is a novel in which striking individuals clash and merge. The unrelenting and often bloody struggle between Colonel Horacio da Silveira and the Badaró brothers for an area of virgin forest involves the boom town of Ilhéos and the surrounding countryside. Amado recounts the course oL that war between titans in a novel peopled by dozens of astonishing figures, packed with fascinating incident, and pervaded with a sinister and gripping atmosphere. Brazilian critics regard it as a great novel; there will be a multitude of readers here to agree with them. In the opening up of southern Bahia, Brazil experienced a ‘cacao-rush’ that more than matched California’s gold rush in drama, tragedy, and brawling humor. That pell-mell drive to be first to harvest gold from the unbelievably fertile cacao-producing lands was taken by Jorge Amado-an outstanding novelist of Brazil’s active literary world-as the background for his famous novel, Terras do sem fim. In Samuel Putnam, Senhor Amado has found a translator who deserves to be called a re-creator. The result is a lusty, credible, and sometimes breathless picture of a now lost way of life that readers in the United States will find at once strange for its tropical lushness and familiar for its frontier flavor. Jorge Amado de Faria (August 10, 1912 - August 6, 2001) was a Brazilian writer of the Modernist school. He was the best-known of modern Brazilian writers, his work having been translated into some 30 languages and popularized in film, notably Dona Flor and her Two Husbands (Dona Flor e Seus Dois Maridos) in 1978.
