Budapest: A Novel
by Chico Buarque
Chico Buarque knows no limitations. Composer, musician, poet, playwright, and novelist, his stunning work, Budapest, seems to pull on all his strengths. Two cities—Rio and Budapest—emerge in this novel, two poles pulling oppositely on the main character, seducing him in their mysterious and alluring ways. An addictive read, this novel will have you suspended between the temptations of Magyar and the lyricism of Portuguese.
