The end by Fernanda Torres( Book )

25 editions published between 2013 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With uncanny insight into the less virtuous corners of the male psyche, Fernanda Torres brings us five friends who once milked the high life of Rio's Bossa Nova age and are now left with memories--parties, marriages, divorces, fixations, inhibitions, bad decisions--and the grim realities of getting old. Álvaro lives alone and bemoans the evils of his ex-wife. Sílvio can't give up the excesses of sex and drugs. Ribeiro is a vain, Viagra-abusing beach bum. Neto is the square, a faithful husband until the end. Ciro is the Don Juan envied by all--but the first to die. Cutting in on these swan songs are the testimonies of those the men seduced, cheated, loved, and abandoned: their wives and children. Edgy, funny, and wise, The End is a candid tropical tragicomedy and an epitaph for a lost generation of machos."--Amazon.com

Glory and its litany of horrors : a novel by Fernanda Torres( Book )

"As an actor, Mario Cardoso has everything going for him: acclaim, an elevated lifestyle, artistic achievement. His apex will be staging a production of Shakespeare's masterpiece King Lear. Everything is going brilliantly until, seeing his co-star dressed as a chicken with a diaper, he breaks down in hysterical laughter, and does so again in each subsequent performance. Mario's troubles worsen when he receives a call reporting that his mother has been found unconscious on a beach in Rio. He abandons Lear and returns to her--and enters a swirl of family drama he'd determined to leave behind. His first shot at recovering his career comes in the guise of a biblical role in an evangelical TV station's production of a soap opera: Sodoma. He has a torrid affair, finds love, and lands a deal with the country's biggest TV network for steady work in soap operas. Mario's new life brings fame and money that theater could never match--but compromises he's made in the past come snarling back to bite him, and his next stage set will be one he never anticipated. With the wicked humor and fleet-footed pace that made her novel The End a runaway bestseller in Brazil and a critical hit in the U.S., Fernanda Torres's Glory and its Litany of Horrors is a wise and funny send-up of a generation that witnessed their ideas of art fall into the hands of the market, and their ideas of the future proven to be as illusory as theater
