90 editions published between 1959 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1925, the wealth produced by the cacao has allowed the economic development of Ilheus, but the customs of its people still are primitive and violent. In this town, Arabic Nacib Saad, hires Gabriela a beautiful mulatto and to his surprise, she is not only a great cook but a lovely benefit to his business. But what would people say if Nacib married her? Gabriela lives on in literature as a beautiful female figure, simple and spontaneous, beyond good and evil. With its unmatched lyricism, Jorge Amado has transmitted the character qualities typical of the Brazilian people: tenderness, sensuality without maliciousness, surrounding joy, happy primitivismo. The poignant romance of Nacib and Gabriela will be, no doubt, in the literary gallery of famous lovers
