The Brazilian people : the formation and meaning of Brazil by Darcy Ribeiro( )

9 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 2,170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first English-language translation of the culmination of the life work of Darcy Ribeiro, one of Brazil's leading twentieth-century intellectuals, known internationally both for his work in Indian affairs and for his political activism. First published as O Povo Brosileiro in 1995, two years before Ribeiro's death, it quickly became a controversial best-seller." "Offering a sweeping overview of the ethnic, racial, and social forces that shape Brazilian culture and society, the book presents no less than an aesthetic of the Brazilian people as a whole. While Ribeiro dwells on the paradox of Brazil as a country of immense potential hindered by racial and class prejudice, he also says it is "the most beautiful and luminous province on earth.""--Jacket
Epitaph of a small winner by Machado de Assis( )

21 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 1,874 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"New translation of Machado's famous novel is for the most part faithful and readable. However, work has occasional odd errors and omissions, and fails to give sufficient attention to Machado's rhythm and syntax. Given Rabassa's vast experience as a translator, it is hard not to suspect that carelessness and haste explain the mistakes and lapses. Also poorly edited and inadequately proofread"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58

An introduction to literature in Brazil. by Afrânio Coutinho( Book )

6 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 1,096 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book portrays the growth of "Brazilianism" in the literature of that country as it slowly broke away from the heavy influence of Portuguese writings and began to deal with native themes and types to express itself in the new Brazilian idiom. The author ties the movements in Brazilian literature to world literary currents of the time, showing how writing in Brazil differed from and at the same time followed certain universal currents.--From book jacket
The green house by Mario Vargas Llosa( Book )

14 editions published between 1968 and 2008 in English and held by 1,067 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mario Vargas Llosa's novel takes place in a Peruvian town, situated between desert and jungle, which is torn by boredom and lust. Don Anselmo, a stranger in a black coat, builds a brothel on the outskirts of the town while he charms its innocent people, setting in motion a chain reaction with extraordinary consequences. This brothel, called the Green House, brings together the innocent and the corrupt: Bonificia, a young Indian girl saved by the nuns only to become a prostitute; Father Garcia, struggling for the church; and four best friends drawn to both excitement and escape. The conflicting forces that haunt the Green House evoke a world balanced between savagery and civilization - and one that is cursed by not being able to discern between the two

62 : a model kit by Julio Cortázar( Book )

8 editions published between 1972 and 2000 in English and Spanish and held by 831 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As one of the main characters, the intellectual Juan, puts it: to one person the City might appear as Paris, to another it might be where one goes upon getting out of bed in Barcelona; to another it might appear as a beer hall in Oslo. This cityscape, as Carlos Fuentes describes it, "seems drawn up by the Marx Brothers with an assist from Bela Lugosi!"
One hundred years of solitude by Gabriel García Márquez( Recording )

32 editions published between 1982 and 2015 in English and held by 806 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The novel tells the story of the rise and fall of the mythical town of Macondo through the history of the Buendía family. Rich and brilliant, it is a chronicle of life, death, and the tragicomedy of humankind.

Macho Camacho's beat by Luis Rafael Sánchez( Book )

6 editions published between 1980 and 2001 in English and Spanish and held by 635 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: "Infinitely multiplied by the blare of radios, TVs and record players in San Juan, Macho Camacho's guaracha weaves its way across the city and through the lives of one family on a single day: Senator Vicente Reinosa, a crooked politician stuck in a gargantuan traffic jam; his neurotic, aristocratic wife; their son Benny, a fascist who is quite literally in love with his Ferrari; and the Senator's mistress, who inhabits a poorer world with her idiot child, her cousins (Hughie, Louie, and Dewey) and her friend Dona Chon. Macho Camacho's Beat blends the music of puns, fantastic wordplay, advertising slogans, and pop-culture references with the rhythm of the guaracha to satirize the invasive "Americanization" of the island and the way in which a momentary fad impacts the culture at large
Strong wind by Miguel Angel Asturias( Book )

2 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 635 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

American Lester Mead and his wife try to bring harmony to a vast banana plantation in a fictional Central American country
We love Glenda so much and other tales by Julio Cortazar( Book )

6 editions published between 1983 and 1984 in English and Spanish and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Passé maître dans l'art du fantastique, Cortazar bouscule l'ordre établi du temps et de l'espace. Ainsi, dans Coupures de presse, une femme participe à une scène de violence dont elle trouvera le récit dans le journal du lendemain et qui s'est déroulée à quelque mille kilomètres de là. Le climat d'angoisse qui sous-tend chaque page reflète évidemment celui de certains pays d'Amérique latine et notamment de l'Argentine. Parfois le problème des disparus est évoqué de façon directe, comme dans Graffiti.Chacune des dix nouvelles composant ce recueil est comme une plongée vers les replis de l'être, où les faux-fuyants et les prétextes n'ont plus cours. On ne revient pas indemne d'un tel voyage
Avalovara by Osman Lins( Book )

7 editions published between 1980 and 2002 in English and held by 602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Avalovara is a novel centered around Abel's courtship of three women. He pursues the sophisticated and inaccessible Roos across Europe; falls in love with Cecilia, a carnal, compassionate hermaphrodite; and achieves a tender, erotic alliance with a woman known only by an ideogram. Avalovara is an extraordinary novel, both in its depiction of modern life and in its rigorous, puzzlelike structure visually represented by a spiral and a five-word palindrome."--Jacket
