The Saddest Pleasure : A Journey through Brazil, Paperback / softback Book

The Saddest Pleasure : A Journey through Brazil Paperback / softback


Unflinchingly honest about his family, his failures, his already broken health at the age of sixty?three and the loss of the hopes he once had for himself, Thomsen is also sickened by the corruption and rapacity of our societies, the inequality and the economic destitution.

What starts as an almost reluctant concatenation of memory and poignant, limpid descriptions of Brazil, grows into a shattering romantic symphony on human misery and life s small but exquisite transcendent pleasures.

He spares the reader nothing.
