An intense, erotic novel from Raduan Nassar, one of Brazil's most infamous modernist writers, that explores alienation, domination and submission. Translated by Stefan Tobler.
Raduan Nassar was born in 1935 to a Lebanese immigrant family in São Paulo.
After the publication of two highly acclaimed works, he retired to rural living and now divides his time between the city and the countryside. After publishing his select body of work he has become an acclaimed cult figure due to his work meriting the highest praise and, although he is not secretive like Thomas Pynchon or J. D. Salinger, he is rarely sighted.
