9781899460052: Babel Guide: Portugal, Brazil, and Africa: Fiction in Translation (Babel Guides to Literature in English Translation)

The Babel guide has 150 original reviews of books by Portuguese, Brazilian and African (from Angola and Mozambique) authors available in English. Each review provides a kind of trailer for the work, with an excerpt as a taster. Alongside names such as Portugal's Jose Saramago or Brazil's Jorge Amado, a collection of other books and authors are covered like the simpatica Clarice Lispector and 'mystery modernist' Fernando Pessoa. It includes a database of Portuguese fiction translated since 1945 with original titles and current prices. This is the second in a series of accessible, illustrated guides to world fiction available in English translation. It is aimed at the general reader of fiction, travellers looking for background books, and students of European Studies, Latin American literature and culture and Portuguese and African literature, post-colonial literature and as a general literary reference.
