A Death in Brazil
2005. A paperback copy in good condition.
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.
