About this Item: Akashic Books,U.S., United States, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In the latest entry to this globetrotting series, a man goes for a tarot reading and winds up poisoned by the daughter he never knew he had. And that s just one story in a collection that takes us down the mysterious alleys and mazy favelas of Rio, just in time for the Olympic Games. --O, the Oprah Magazine The latest installment of Akashic s geographically wide-ranging mystery series lands in Rio de Janeiro, a city whose famous imagery--the massive statue of Christ the Redeemer, Sugarloaf mountain, the beautiful beaches--constitutes the public face of the city, but behind lurks a world of shadows, blood, intrigue, violence, hideouts, and mystery .A good introduction to writers of the region and to the dark side of a very sunny place. --Booklist As Rio de Janeiro prepares to host the 2016 summer Olympics amid fears of the Zika virus, this anthology of 14 dark and violent short stories set in the Brazilian city might give prospective visitors more reasons to be concerned.A solid addition to Akashic s acclaimed noir series. --Publishers Weekly Bellotto has assembled here a winning cast of writers whose own procurers, colonels, cops, traffickers, socialites, slum-dwellers, embezzlers, tourists, detectives, journalists, politicians, assassins, outlaws, and coup-plotters jump off every page and into your bed. This anthology is delicious and deliciously discomforting. --Words Without Borders, Included in The Watchlist These clever, well written stories are for anyone who wants to get a behind the scenes look at Rio, where drugs, violence, sex and murder are major themes. All of these stories show Rio as a city that is teeming with life, even if some of it is dark and shadowy. --Susanne s Booklist Akashic Books continues its groundbreaking series of original noir anthologies, launched in 2004 with Brooklyn Noir. Each story is set in a distinct neighborhood or location within the city of the book. Brand-new stories by: Tony Bellotto, Luiz Alfredo Garcia-Roza, MV Bill, Luiz Eduardo Soares, Guilherme Fiuza, Arthur Dapieve, Victoria Saramago, Arnaldo Bloch, Adriana Lisboa, Alexandre Fraga dos Santos, Marcelo Ferroni, Flavio Carneiro, Raphael Montes, and Luis Fernando Verissimo. All stories translated from Portuguese by Clifford Landers (Coelho s The Alchemist, etc.). From the introduction by Tony Bellotto The images of Rio de Janeiro are well known: high rises aligned along white sandy beaches, a blue sea, freshwater lakes, and luxuriant forests that stretch through winding mountains of stone.the open arms of Christ the Redeemer blessing a happy, cordial, mixed-race people ever ready to dance a samba or offer a welcoming smile to the tourists who move about in the streets admiring beautiful women shimmying nude atop floats in Carnival parades.Opa! This is not a tourist guide. The city revealed in this book is a different Rio. Even though famous landscapes are present in the pages of Rio Noir, what is exposed here is a world of shadows, blood, intrigue, violence, hideouts, and mystery (and also of humor, of course, as is necessary with any undertaking involving Cariocas).Whether we have succeeded in deciphering an enigma with the dramas of our procurers, card readers, colonels, cops, traffickers, socialites, slum dwellers, embezzlers, tourists, brokers, detectives, journalists, politicians, assassins, editors, outlaws, travelers, coup plotters, writers, lovers, and everyday citizens, I don t know. But we have surely added a large shadow to the sunny landscape of this wonderful city. Seller Inventory # AAT9781617753121

About this Item: DEL LINCE, 2010. Condition: Nuevo. Crónica negra de la violencia y de la corrupción policial y política en Río de Janeiro, Tropa de élite es una brillante narración basada en la realidad. Un documento que se lee como una novela, y está escrito a ritmo de ráfagas de metralleta. Cuenta la historia de la complicidad entre narcotráfico y fuerzas del orden en las favelas de la ciudad que será sede de un campeonato mundial de fútbol y unas olimpiadas en los próximos años. La trama de secuestros, asesinatos, venganza, dinero negro, chantajes, codicia económica y ambición política, se teje en torno al testimonio de dos miembros del BOPE, el cuerpo de élite creado con la sana y vana intención de contar con una policía capaz de resistir la tentación del soborno. Los 150.000 ejemplares de este libro vendidos en Brasil, y el Oso de Oro que obtuvo en Berlín la película basada en sus historias, dan testimonio sobrado de la importancia que tiene este documento extraordinario de validez universal. «Hoy día hay que contar la delincuencia de otra manera. Tropa de élite marca ese nuevo camino.» Roberto Saviano, autor de Gomorra. Seller Inventory # 4200000004

The cover design is by Fernando Marques. The introduction (Propósito) is signed by Garibaldino de Andrade and Leonel Cosme.Imbondeiro was established by Garibaldino de Andrade and Leonel Cosme in January 1960 in Sá da Bandeira (now Lumbango). A monthly publication, Colecção Imbondeiro, aimed to disseminate the literature of Portugal's colonies. Within a few months, its circulation reached two thousand. Imbondeiro also published multi-volume anthologies, including Mákua (poetry), Dendela (children's literature), Imbondeiro Gigante (short stories), Livro de Bolso Imbondeiro (short stories, novellas, and dramas), Contos d'Africa and Novos contos d'Africa. In these and the 68 issues of the Colecção Imbondeiro, the Imbondeiro press introduced more than sixty authors who were significant in the literature of the Portuguese colonies. Imbondeiro was the largest publisher of its time in Angola. Its rival in publishing authors in the Portuguese colonies was the Casa dos Estudantes do Império, based in Lisbon, whose Colecção Autores Ultramarinos tended to be more favorable to the Portuguese government. Imbondeiro was so influential that in 1965 the Portuguese authorities shut it down, based partly on the fact that some of Imbondeiro's authors had expressed disaffection with the government.Provenance: Cândido Manuel de Oliveira da Velha (b. Ílhavo, district of Aveiro, 1933), son of a deep-sea fisherman, studied in Aveiro before moving to Lisbon in 1951 and Angola in 1957. There he joined the Sociedade Cultural de Angola, which was shut down in 1965 by the governor-general. His professional life put him in contact with the working classes in Luanda, Huambo, Bié, Benguela, Cuanza-Sul, Huíla, and Moçâmedes, which had a profound influence on his poetry. From 1958 to 1975 he collaborated on many periodicals in Luanda, including A Província de Angola, Jornal de Angola, and Prisma. He returned to Portugal in 1975, settling in Baixo Alentejo. Principal works include Quero-te, Intangîvel, Africa, 1963, As idades de pedra, 1969, Corporália, 1972, Signo de Caranguejo, 1972, Memória breve de uma cidade, 1988, and Navio dentro do mapa, 1994. Velha was awarded the Prémio da Angola, 1959, the Prémio de Poesia da Associação dos Naturais de Angola in 1963, and the Prémio Motta Veiga, 1969.*** Moser and Ferreira, New Bibliography of the Lusophone Literatures of Africa, nº 1528: listing it under Garibaldino de [Oliveira da Conceição] Andrade and Leonel Cosme.

About this Item: Lisbon, Na Officina Craesbeeckiana, 1651., 1651. Folio (27 x 19 cm.), late-nineteenth-century green quarter morocco over marbled boards (a few tiny wormholes at joints), spine gilt with raised bands in five compartments (spine slightly faded, some wear to head and foot, raised bands), short author-title gilt in second compartment from head, gilt tooling to leather at marbled paper on boards, marbled endleaves, text-block edges sprinkled red and green. Some minor marginal soiling, but generally crisp and clean. In very good to fine condition. Bookplate of A. Moreira Cabral, and with his inscription on the flyleaf, noting that it was given to him by Eduardo da Cunha Rego in 1874. Monogram in ink on blank portion of title page. Engraved title, engraved portrait, (4 ll.), 444 pp., (24 ll.), with full-page woodcut on p. 59. *** FIRST EDITION of this vital source for the history of Portuguese expansion in India, and the most famous biography in the Portuguese language; it has been translated into Latin as well as English (by Sir Peter Wyche, published in 1664), and has gone through a multitude of editions.D. João de Castro was a sailor, soldier, colonial administrator, scientist and cartographer. Born in Lisbon in 1500, he became at an early age a brilliant humanist, studying mathematics under Pedro Núñez. At age eighteen he went to Tangiers, where he was dubbed knight by the governor, D. Duarte de Menezes. In 1535 he accompanied D. Luis, son of King Manuel I, to the siege of Tunis. D. João left for the Indies soon after 1538 and enlisted among the aventureiros, "the bravest of the brave," who were sent to relieve Diu. Upon his return to Portugal in 1543, he was named commander of a fleet sent to clear the European seas of pirates. Two years later he was sent with a fleet of six ships back to the Indies. By his overthrow of Mahmud, King of Gujarat, by the relief of Diu and by the defeat of the great army of Adil Khan, D. João achieved such popularity that the merchants of Goa were willing to make him a substantial loan with only his moustache as security. Castro soon captured Broach, completely subjugated Malacca, and sent António Moniz into Ceylon. Also included here is an account of the battles at Ormuz between the Turks and the Arabs. In 1547 Castro was appointed viceroy of India by D. João III, but died in 1548, in the arms of his friend St. Francis Xavier. (See Encyclopedia Britannica, 11th ed., V, 484.) D. João de Castro is without doubt the man of greatest stature among the Portuguese who governed India.Jacinto Freire de Andrada, an ecclesiastic gifted in writing both prose and verse, was born in Beja in 1597 and died in Lisbon in 1657. Before the Restauração he was suspected of nationalist tendencies, and retired to his cure in the diocese of Viseu. His Vida de D. João de Castro has sometimes been regarded as the model of Portuguese prose, and at other times has been roundly criticized for its style; see, for example, the critics quoted in Innocêncio III, 240-2. One of Freire de Andrada's most remarkable literary devices was the use of imaginary letters from D. João de Castro concerning problems such as the Turkish threat and attacks on missionaries.The finely engraved title-page and the portrait of D. João de Castro are both signed with the monogram "LV," i.e., Lucas Vorsterman. Vorsterman was born in Antwerp ca. 1624, the son of the famous engraver Lucas Emile Vorsterman, from whom he learned the art. The son lived in Portugal from 1645 to 1648 and was a friend of D. Francisco Manuel de Mello. Soares comments, "Ainda que as suas obras não sejam comparáveis as de seu pai e mestre, tem, todavia, o merecimento da correcção e do manejo do buril, distinguindo-se das executadas no século XVII pela vida e movimento das suas figuras."*** There appear to be two distinct issues, one with 24 unnumbered leaves in the final section, the other with 25, but no bibliographer has called attention to this. Arouca A352 (calls for 50 unnumbered pages at end). Cruz, Tipografia portuguesa do. Seller Inventory # 21511
