CROSSROADS by Erico Verissimo


Email this review


A Brazilian best seller, but one which seems at odds with American tastes, in a derisive, unpleasant picture of various, unconnected individuals in a city community. Illustrating the idea that there is no real beauty in life, his people -- rich or poor --are all equally selfish, vain, lustful, complaining, meaningless. A consumptive, a professor, a public benefactor, a family of newly rich and their spoiled children, a spendthrift and a playboy, a prostitute, among others in an unpleasant book which is not for general consumption.
