Machado de Assis is Brazil’s most renowned writer. Critics, including Harold Bloom and Susan Sontag, consider him the most important Latin American writer. He has been compared with Twain, Tolstoy, Flaubert, Sterne, and more than a dozen other great writers. 

Ex Cathedra is a collection of 21 new translations of short stories. Most have never before appeared in English. The translators are scholars from three continents. 

This bilingual edition presents the original Portuguese on one side of each spread, the English translation on the other. This format proves useful to scholars comparing the languages and to students of Portuguese or English. 

And of course lovers of literature will appreciate every story for their detailed realism and their flights of surrealism.
