Stories by Machado de Assis -- Bilingual Edition

translated by Greicy Pinto Bellin, Ph.D., and Ana Lessa-Schmidt, Ph.D.

with a Foreword by Ana Cláudia Suriani da Silva, Ph.D.

Paperback, 540 pages  $18.95  $16.95

Machado de Assis is considered one of the greatest writers in Western history. He has been praised by the likes of Harold Bloom, Susan Sontag, Philip Roth, Salman Rushdie, and Carlos Fuentes. He has been compared to Shakespeare, Dickens, Kafka, Voltaire, Tolstoy, Flaubert, Dostoyevsky, Twain, Nabokov, Becket, Swift, and Sterne. 

The Miss Dollar collection presents ten short stories never before translated into English. They represent Machado’s earlier work and his transition into his more sophisticated works of the early 1880s. Though relatively simple, at times even silly, they are surprising in their subtle revelations of modernism, feminism, and the evolution of Brazil’s rigid socio-economic class structure as it moved from an imperial to a republican government.

New London Librarium is proud to bring the skills and knowledge of an exceptionally qualified team of translators. Greicy Pinto Bellin, Ph.D., is the author of numerous research papers on Machado de Assis. Ana Lessa-Schmidt, Ph.D., not only contributed to another collection of Machado stories, Ex Cathedra, but has also translated books by renowned literary journalist João do Rio. 

Stories include:

The Woman in Black
Confessions of a Young Widow
The Gold Watch
Miss Dollar
Friar Simão
Coach 13
Augusta’s Secret
Three Consequences
The Blue Parasite

This is an excellent companion volume to complement Ex Cathedra: Stories by Machado de Assis--Bilingual Edition, which presents 21 stories from Machado’s later, more literary period.

Also available for eBook for iPad, Nook, Kobo, and Kindle.
