Spilt milk by Chico Buarque( Book )

56 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Centenarian Eulalio Assumpcao has reached the end of his long life. From his modest bed in a Rio public hospital, as his mind falters, he grandly recounts his past to passing nurses, his visiting daughter and the whitewashed ceiling. His eccentric stories are seemingly nothing more than the ramblings of a dying man, yet as he overlaps each confused memory, they begin to coalesce into a brilliant and bitter eulogy for himself and for Brazil. Charting his own fall from aristocracy, Eulalio's feverish monologue sprawls across the last century, from his empire-building ancestors to his drug-dealing great-great grandson. He confronts his senator father who squandered the family fortune on women and cocaine, and recalls the imperious mother who he always disappointed; but as he drifts through each shifting episode, he never stops searching for Matilde, the girl with cinnamon skin, who danced her way into his heart and then broke it when she disappeared

74 editions published between 2003 and 2015 in 18 languages and held by 634 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Not just one of Brazil's most influential and beloved composers and musicians, Chico Buarque has won high praise as a poet, playwright, and novelist.

My German brother by Chico Buarque( Book )

37 editions published between 2013 and 2019 in 7 languages and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1960s São Paulo, teenage car thief and budding lothario Ciccio comes home each day to a house stuffed with books. His father, a scholar, cold and aloof, has spent his life acquiring them; his mother, by necessity, has spent her life organizing them. Ciccio himself feels like an afterthought in his own family, largely left to his own criminal devices. Though forbidden to touch any of the volumes in the library, Ciccio sneaks off with The Golden Bough one day only to discover a decades-old letter hidden inside the book, addressed to his father from a mysterious woman in Berlin. Ciccio becomes convinced that his father must have had an affair with this woman in the years before World War II -- an affair that produced a son, a German brother who, real or imaginary, Ciccio becomes obsessed with tracking down. Thus begins a fractured coming-of-age tale, tawdry and epic by turns, about a lifelong obsession: one man's quest not only for his mythical sibling but for his father's respect"--
Terra : struggle of the landless by Sebastião Salgado( Book )

8 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Salgado's stunning photographs of Brazil's landless rural population (estimated at nearly five million) includes an impassioned and biting preface by Saramago, three poems by Chico Buarque, and extensive captions. Ably translated. A beautiful and disturbing book"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58
Turbulence : a novel by Chico Buarque( Book )

59 editions published between 1991 and 2012 in 9 languages and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A major literary event that has taken the international publishing community by storm: A best-seller in Brazil, where it received unprecedented critical acclaim, Turbulence has also been translated into French, German, Italian, and Spanish, among other major languages. Written by Chico Buarque, one of Brazil's premier singers and songwriters, the novel gives an intense, apocalyptic vision of the paranoia, lawlessness, and nightmare of urban life in Brazil - an extended metaphor for a country facing the menace of a violent confrontation between the rich and the poor." "Set in the decaying and poverty-stricken outskirts of an unnamed city, Turbulence consists of a series of highly charged cinematic scenes, viewed through the dazed eyes of a nameless narrator who moves between two different worlds. An aimless dropout, living on handouts from his rich sister, he belongs by birth to the privileged urban upper crust, with its luxury seaside apartments, its fabulous houses hidden behind electrified high walls and protected by machine-gun-toting security guards, its insanely expensive boutiques and shopping centers, its extravagant parties and trips to Europe. By chance he enters the "other Brazil," the world of marginal and petty criminals that infringes on the edges of privileged society and threatens to engulf it." "Told with compelling urgency, rich in irony, alive with arresting imagery, Turbulence is a haunting novel of kidnapping, assault and robbery, rape, and murder."--BOOK JACKET
