The great Brazilian novelist's comic masterpiece—published in a new translation for the centennial of Jorge Amado's birth


Here is the story of Joaquim Soares da Cunha, a Falstaff-like character who abandons his life of upstanding citizenship to assume the identity of Quincas Water-Bray, king of the Bahia lowlife and a "champion drunk." After a decade of revelry among bums, pimps, and prostitutes, he drops dead, and his prim family gathers for a proper burial. But when Quincas's unsavory friends show up with a bottle of rum, they whisk him along on a postmortem journey to enjoy one last party—his own wake.
