Literature articles include analysis and discussion of canonic and previously marginalized authors and treat representative works, genres, and literary and philosophical currents. Extremely useful, well written, and interesting"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.

This inspiring, and sometimes humorous account, appeared in 1982 and was an immediate bestseller in Brazil. A prize-winning stage adaptation premiered in 1984 and ran for five years, touring internationally. Happy Old Year was filmed in 1988 and swept most of the awards at the annual Gramado Festival of Brazilian Cinema.
