Description:

New York. 1946. Macmillan. 1st Printing. Previous Owner's Name Penned In Front, Otherwise Very Good In Dustjacket. 27. 485 pages. hardcover. keywords:. inventory # 15078. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Spicing his story with satire, Erico Verissimo again, as he did so effectively in his novel ‘Crossroads,’ depicts the many-sided urban life of today in Porto Alegre, up-and-coming metropolis of southern Brazil. In the dusky peace of Good Friday evening a young girl falls from the thirteenth floor of a skyscraper. At least seven persons see her fall-a retired and pompous official; a businessman, on the verge of bankruptcy, who gambles alike with stocks, cards, and women; a novelist; an ex-deputy; a newsboy; an unemployed and meditative typographer; a woman, wife of the celebrated musician who is just then visiting Porto Alegre. The abundant plot traces the effects of the girl’s death on the destinies of these people and their families. During the two days after the accident (if such it was), a variety of events tragic and comic occurs, and since Brazil, even more than the United States, mingles races in a changing and somehow hopeful pattern of poverty and toil, luxury and crime, disappointments and astonishing good fortune, the author brings all of this into his story. But over and beyond the pathos and intrigue and romance is his deep, warm enthusiasm for human nature. ENRICO VERISSIMO is probably the most talented and personally popular of the newer Brazilian writers. He is a native of southeastern Brazil. Both as a writer and as an individual, he is deeply interested in human beings and their problems. Within the last fifteen years he has written many books, as well as several translations-of James Hilton and John Steinbeck, and of Aldous Huxley’s ‘Point Counter Point’-into Portuguese. For ‘Musica ao Longe’ and ‘Caminhos Cruzados’ (‘Crossroads’) he won the Machado de Assis and the Graça Aranha prizes. Senhor Verissimo is Literary Adviser for Livraria do Globo in Porto Alegre, one of Brazil’s largest publishing houses, and has a wide acquaintance with modern American letters. As a guest of the United States Depart- ment of State, Senhor Verissimo has lectured on Brazilian literature at the University of California in Berkeley, and was a member of the staff of Casa Panamericana at Mills College, Oakland, during the summer session of 1944. He also lectured extensively throughout the western and central states before returning to Brazil in the summer of 1945. . Previous Owner's Name Penned In Front, Otherwise Very Good In Dustjacket.
