From the publisher

Acclaimed as "the greatest writer ever produced in Latin America" by Susan Sontag, as well as "another Kafka" by Allen Ginsberg, Machado de Assis (1839-1908) was famous in his time for his psychologically probing tales of fin-de-siecle Rio de Janeiro. Margaret Jull Costa and Robin Patterson, "the accomplished duo" (The Wall Street Journal) behind the "landmark...heroically translated" volume (The New Yorker) of The Collected Stories of Machado de Assis (ISBN 978 0 87140 496 1), include twenty-six chronologically ordered stories, Machado de Assis affirms Machado's status as a literary giant who must finally be fully integrated into the world literary canon.
