A landmark event, the complete stories of Machado de Assis appear in English for the first time in this extraordinary new translation.

A progenitor of twentieth-century Latin American fiction, Joaquim Maria Machado de Assis (1839-1908), was hailed in his lifetime as Brazil's greatest writer. This majestic translation combines all his short-story collections appearing in his lifetime and reintroduces de Assis as a literary giant who must be integrated into the world literary canon.

Review:

"To Machado, your identity and the contours of your world are formed not just by your circumstances but by what you think about habitually. You are what you contemplate, so choose wisely. These stories are a spectacular place to start." --The New York Times

"These are ambitious stories, serious and unflinching, willing to court discomfort - not least in their author. Machado, after all, was the child who made it. While some critics have seen these late stories in isolation, the hurt they express - so clearly born of experience - radiates out through all the work here." --Times Literary Supplement

"This gorgeously-produced landmark English-language edition of the complete stories of the great Brazilian miniaturist brings together all of the author's short fiction, including some never before translated into English. The translating duo here wonderfully convey the author's dry, deadpan wit and dogged low-key happiness - it's the English version this author has always deserved." --Open Letters Review

About the Author:

Machado De Assis, the grandson of ex-slaves, was born in Rio de Janeiro and wrote Philosopher or Dog?, among other novels and short-story collections.
