Format: Hardcover
Mario de Andrade - writer, folklorist, musician, poet - published "Macunaíma, the hero with no character" in the 20s. It's a fantastic trip throughout Brazilian culture, music, ethnic origins, geography, folklore, all sewed together in the delicious adventures of the ultimate Brazilian, Macunaima. He's born an Indian, becomes Black, and then White, and never loses contact with his previous lives. It's not just exotic, magic and adventurous. It's intelligent, challenging, first class literature.

Format: Hardcover
Mario de Andrade's Macunaíma is a "Sui Generis" book that shows the high-level of Brazilians authors literature, with a so well-humorated and creative history that keeps you hooked with the book all the time. The mix of all brazilians folklore is something great and nice to read and learn. Try...It's pretty good!!!!!!!!!
