Peter Robb's most recent book combines travel, history, culture and his own memories over twenty years to create a portrait of Brazil-one of the strangest and most beautiful countries in the world. Robb describes the careers of two remarkably different men: Lula da Silva, who in 2002 became Brazil's first working-class president; and his predecessor, Fernando Collor, a wealthy law graduate who robbed Brazil of over a billion dollars.A Death in Brazil is a true story of greed, jealousy and sexual drama that mirrors the Brazilian soap operas watched by one hundred million people every night.'As in his earlier volume, Midnight in Sicily, Robb weaves together the various strands of the story with such intimate energy that reading "A Death in Brazil" is like finding yourself in someone else's dream or, perhaps, nightmare'- SUNDAY TIMES'A remarkable, unusual and deeply personal account of a country of passionate extremes, of privilege and deprivation, of sensual beauty and dire injustice. Robb brings the country thrillingly alive with a vision that is individual, robust and unforgettable.'-THE INDEPENDENT
