The EUU Book Club will discuss The Posthumous Memoirs of Brás Cubas, by Machado De Assis suggested by John, who writes this:
THE classic work of 19th century Brazilian literature — everyone there reads it like Americans all read Huckleberry Finn. A (Brazilian) former student recommended it to me because now there is a Danish translation. I then discovered that there are two new English translations, both out just a few months ago. I chose the one translated by Margaret Costa and Robin Patterson (Livright Publishing), on the basis of the review in the NY Times. There are also older translations which are probably OK too (and possibly cheaper, if you are buying it).
