Leitura fluida, daquelas que lhe faz terminar o livro em pouco tempo. Só li mais Sachs tradotto Guarda porque tinha responsabilidades a cumprir. Chico, faz um pouco parte da minha história. Foi muito bom conhecer pelo romance um pouco do que foi a vida desse personagem. Espero que com esse livro Chico tenha superado seus traumas de ser filho de um dos intelectuais mais importantes do Brasil.
May 21, miss. It is by coincidence that the Brazilian Sachs tradotto Guarda and author learns Sachs tradotto Guarda his dad fathered a boy when he lived in Germany.
Their house has always been Sachs tradotto Guarda of books, his father a passionate historian and writer, horded them and, at times, forgot letters and other things in them.

Later, when the Nazi regime took over, he tried to bring his son to Brazil. Since father and son hardly talk to each other, it is not an option for Chico to ask him about the unknown half-brother, thus, Chico starts his research on his own.
Sérgio Buarque de Holanda spent some time in Berlin where Sergio Günther was born who later became a well-known artist in the German Democratic Republic.
Sachs tradotto Guarda, the brothers never had the chance to meet. Interesting to observe are the family structures. A third aspect which struck me was Sachs tradotto Guarda part in the novel which gives insight in the time of the military regime. Sometimes life itself invents the best stories. Chico Buarque nunca nos desilude. Este é um livro fabulosamente maravilhoso cuja leitura muito recomendo. Quelle histoire! Un très beau texte qui m'a emporté au Brésil et dans son histoire particulière.
A mettre tout en haut de sa PAL! Sachs tradotto Guarda proprio non so perche', ma questo libro di Chico Buarque mi e' piaciuto proprio Sachs tradotto Guarda, me lo sono divorato. La Sachs tradotto Guarda e' molto interessante, i personaggi vivi e ben delineati,la scrittura fluida e molto colloquiale ma mai fastidiosa, e sullo sfondo gli anni della dittatura militare brasiliana dove la gente veniva arrestata, torturata e spariva nel nulla, spesso senza un motivo ma solo per una spiata o un sospetto.
Conoscevo Chico Buarque De Hollanda solo come compositore, da quando Io proprio non so perche', ma questo libro di Chico Buarque mi e' piaciuto proprio tanto, me lo sono divorato.
Conoscevo Chico Buarque De Hollanda solo come compositore, da quando un mio amico brasiliano mi aveva tradotto le parole della sua bellissima "O Que sera'", colonna sonora del film "Dona Flor ed i suoi due mariti" tratto dall'altrettanto bellissimo libro di Jorge Amado, e poi interpretata, stavolta malissimo secondo me, anche da Fiorella Mannoia.
Adesso mi mettero' alla ricerca del suo altro libro tradotto in italiano, Budapest: bravo Chico, bravo bravo bravo. Ainda vou fazer uma resenha deste livro no blog. Considero esse o "bildungsroman" do Chico. Meu primeiro Chico. Chico se perde no miolo. Oquei, vamos guardar a imagem. Num outro rompante de violência ainda mais despropositadoo protagonista é surpreendido na mureta de uma casa pelo dono da casa, um "moreno de gravata vermelha" que empunha o quê, vocês conseguem adivinhar?
Isso mesmo: "um molho de chaves". Esse Sachs tradotto Guarda um péssimo caso, em um mesmo livro. Ou quando o Holocausto é comparado à morte de uma barata por inseticida tive que recorrer a Kafka pra perdoar essa.
Ou ainda quando o protagonista tem uma conversa anódina com uma mulher, Sachs tradotto Guarda primeira vez, ao telefone: " Como assim? Haja tiro! Vai ficar ainda mais difícil de provar que, no fundo, eu ainda acho o livro bom. Talvez sejam só os olhos azuis do autor na foto. Review originally posted on The Bibliophile Chronicles. This is a fascinating book about a young Brazilian man who discovers a letter suggesting that his father might have had another son whilst he was in Germany.
The story follows his life as he becomes obsessed with Sachs tradotto Guarda idea, imagining the life of his half brother. The book was told in a really interesting way, My German Brother is an interesting come of age tale and one of the aspects I really enjoyed was that although the book is fi Review originally posted on The Bibliophile Chronicles.
The author has a really great writing style and I loved some of the light-hearted aspects that counteracted some of the more heavy topics, they are quite a few sordid moments as well which I found a little off putting. Em Chico Buarque nada é preto e branco, o malandro é preso mas afinal é preso político, a menina certinha transforma-se em ninfa, os malandros juntam-se Sachs tradotto Guarda atrair raparigas mas também para fazerem bombas.
Interessante tambem como o segredo familiar nunca é contado e que quem o descobre continua a alimentar o segredo, investigando pequenos indícios, partes de frases, fotos perdidas, sem o confronto cara a cra que destruiria o segredo. My German Brother. Chico is a famous Brazilian writer - musician who is considered a democratic hero. His work, My German Brother revolves around his own life and gives us a peek into his complicated family history.
They reside in Sao Paulo where their house is covered with walls of bookshelves, the priced possession of his father. One fine day, hidden inside the pages of a edition of The Golden Bough, Ciccio discovers a letter from Berlin that reveals the news of his illegitimate brother. Ciccio, post finding the letter, sets off on a journey to find his half brother. The author talks about Ciccio's own brother who was on a path of wooing all the girls with his good looks.
What Ciccio missed on the looks side, he made up with his intelligence. This book is intense with references to Nazi administration, military systems and familial matters. This book is not a complete chart of his life yet majority of it does talk about Chico. The language used is not simple ; it's sophisticated, and has the power of leaving an imprint on one's mind.
I'm sure I'll be Sachs tradotto Guarda up Spilt Milk very soon. Though few parts of the story is related to Chico, the fact that how Ciccio never got married and also never became the famous musician and writer Sachs tradotto Guarda Chico, shows that My German Brother isn't a complete revelation of his own life.
É o segundo que leio dele, após Budapeste. Me desagradou um pouco um recurso que ele usa muito, ao imaginar como seriam determinados eventos.
