9780141396804: A Cup of Rage

Longlisted for the Man Booker International Prize

'A savagely short novel of immeasurable ambition and violent beauty. This is the language of genius.' Juan Pablos Villalobos

'How often, honestly, does the unveiling in translation of a 'forgotten genius' live up to the hype? Well here's one that does: Raduan Nassar' Times Literary Supplement

'Yes, bastard, you're the one I love'

A pair of lovers - a young female journalist and an older man who owns an isolated farm in the Brazilian outback - spend the night together. The next day they proceed to destroy each other. Amid vitriolic insults, cruelty and warring egos, their sexual adventure turns into a savage power game. This intense, erotic cult novel by one of Brazil's most infamous modernist writers explores alienation, the desire to dominate and the wish to be dominated.

A new translation by Stefan Tobler

Product Description:

A novella about the highly erotic relationship between a young, urban, feminist woman and a similarly well educated, but older, cynical and macho small-scale farmer in the Brazilian outback, this book is shocking and infamous. A famous book of Brazilian modernism, it could at first sight appear a piece of chauvinist fantasy, but that would be to ignore the fact that the author is at an ironic distance to the narrator, and although almost all the book is in the narrator's voice, it becomes clear that the book is a scathing portrayal of the male psyche, its infantilism and tantrums - the egotistical man unable to deal with the new gender role, yet this does not stop the book also being a merciless reckoning with second-hand, glib liberal posturing.
