A CHAPTER OF HATS: SELECTED STORIES
by Machado de Assis
translated by John Gledson
published by Bloomsbury

*

Machado de Assis (1839-1908) is the great Brazilian author of Philosopher or Dog? and Epitaph of a Small Winner, whose work is admired by writers as different as Salman Rushdie, Carlos Fuentes, Woody Allen and Susan Sontag. Taken from his mature period, these dazzling stories echo Poe and Gogol, anticipate Joyce, and have been compared to the writing of Chekhov, Maupassant and Henry James--yet his modern sensibility and clear-eyed humour remain utterly unique.
