Description
When he was given a chance to contribute to a series of novels on the seven deadly sins, Joćo Ubaldo Ribeiro chose lust. In this 1999 novel, a woman living in mid-20th-century provincial Brazil tries to free herself from reactionary society through sexual experimentation. By force of her intelligence, courage, and strength of will, she achieves an unlikely liberation of both mind and body, and her sardonic "socio-historio-literary-pornographic testimony," is itself a spoof of tell-all memoirs.

"While exhibiting a deep sensitivity to the complex currents in Brazilian society, Ribeiro's novels and short stories also display a keen awareness of the problematic relationships existing among history, fiction, and truth."—Luiz Fernando Valente
