About this title


Brazil is a 1994 novel by the American author John Updike. It contains many elements of magical realism. Tristøo Raposo, a nineteen –year-old black child of the Rio slums, spies Isabel Leme, an eighteen-year-old upper-class white girl, across the hot sands of Copacabana Beach, and presents her with a ring. Their flight into marriage takes them from urban banality to the farthest reaches of Brazil’s wild west, where magic still rules. Privation, violence, captivity and poverty afflict them; his mother curses them, her father strives to separate them, and neither lover is absolutely faithful. Yet Tristøo and Isabel hold on to the belief that each is the other’s fate for life, as they develop in ways they never thought possible.
