When Gabriela came to the Brazilian town of Ilheus, things would never be the same again In 1925, the town's cacao plantations are flourishing and progress reigns, but Nacib the Arab's most desperate worry is that his cook has walked out of his bar. He ventures over to the market to hire a migrant worker to help him and comes across a young mulatto girl named Gabriela who is wild and has hair filthy with dust. But something in her voice makes him take a chance, and it seems he's not the only man who's noticed her. Suddenly there is more to think about than everyday concerns: love affairs, murder, banquets, funerals, desire, hatred, vengeance and miracles.

'One of the greatest writers alive ... also one of the most entertaining' Mario Vargas Llosa, author of The Feast of the Goat and Death in the Andes 'As a story it has got it all: assassinations, political intrigue, treachery, vengeance, illicit liaisons and a relentless narrative energy' Glasgow Herald 'Amado is by turns a realist, fantastical, episodic, direct, angry, humorous and, above all, characterful' Scotsman 'An exciting and enjoyable romp of a book, rich in literary delights' New York Times

Övrig information

Jorge Amado was born in 1912 in Ilheus, the provincial capital of the state of Bahia, in Brazil. The son of a cocoa planter, he published his first novel at the age of nineteen, and both that and succeeding novels were dominated by the theme of class struggle, giving way in the 1950s to a lighter approach, an international reputation and stage and film versions of his work. Amado died at the age of eighty-eight in 2001.
