Within the dream-Brazil of John Updike’s imagining, virtually whatever is feasible when you are younger and in love. whilst Tristão Raposo, a black nineteen-year-old from the Rio slums, and Isabel Leme, an eighteen-year-old upper-class white lady, meet on Copacabana seashore, their flight from relations and into marriage takes them to the farthest reaches of Brazil’s phantasmagoric western frontier. Privation, violence, captivity, and reversals of fortune afflict them, but this latter-day Tristan and Iseult hold to the religion that every is the other’s destiny for all times. Spanning twenty-two years, from the sixties during the eighties, Brazil surprises with its party of ardour, loyalty, romance, and New international innocence.
