Epitaph of a Small Winner

Epitaph of a Small Winner

(1880)
(The Posthumous Memoirs of Bras Cubas)
A novel by

 

"One of the masterpieces of Brazilian literature."
Salman Rushdie


In these memoirs, Braz Cubas, a wealthy nineteenth-century Brazilian, examines (from beyond the grave) his rather undistinguished life in 160 short chapters that are filled with philosophical digressions and exuberant insights. A clear forerunner of Gabriel García Márquez and Jorge Luis Borges, Epitaph for a Small Winner, first published in 1880, is one of the wittiest self-portraits in literary history as well as "one of the masterpieces of Brazilian literature' (Salman Rushdie).
