Tent of Miracles (1967)
by Jorge Amado

I'm told that Tent of Miracle is a satire, and while the prose evokes an occasional chuckle, I think a modern English language reader is going to find much that is particularly funny. On the other hand it is an insightful portrayal of Brazilian society in the mid 1960's, and what with the Olympics imminent, there is no better time to read up on Brazilian literature.
