: Fortunata and Jacinta is a great, great novel.
: It is indeed available in Penguin, in
: English. If you can find it, I would also
: recommend "Dona Perfecta" by Perez
: Galdos (although "F&J" is
: considered his masterpiece).
: About Brazil, there are a couple I would
: strongly recommend: "The Posthumous
: Memoirs of Blas Cubas", by Machado de
: Assis, funny and poignant, and
: "Gabriela, Clove and Cinnamon", by
: Jorge Amado, which we read in ReadLit a few
: years ago.
