Home is the Sailor book. 020911: first book by amado since reading that twayne lit crit, more awareness of comic, satiric writing. i liked it, but was not too surprised how the narrator interrupts, the characters choose sides, the story works out. i guess i was waiting for it, ready for it, so missed that moment of surprise, though there is mounting tension about how exactly it will.

A lovely shaggy dog story from Amado shows that he has a great sense of humour and does not always need to be serious. Periperi is a suburb of Bahia. One day, a new resident arrives – Captain Vasco Moscoso de Aragão. Who is he? He reveals himself to be a retired naval captain and soon has the town entranced with his stories of daring sea journeys and lost loves. Everyone is fascinated, except for Chico Pacheco, the now supplanted town storyteller.
