Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands is a novel about a cooking teacher whose first husband is a charming lowlife who is always disappearing in search of wine women song and roulette and her second marriage to an upright responsible devoted pharmacist who for all his good ualities is duller and reserved Especially in bedHaving read the long and mildly tedious Island Boy I picked it up in the hope it would be a bit fun It s fiction it s Brazilian all the blurbs on the cover go on about it being exotic sexy tropical the work of a great story teller all the kind of joyous clich s you d hope for from the country that gave us Elza Soares Ronaldinho and the caipirinha I don t only want to read books reinforce national stereotypes but in a wet London November a bit of Brazil seems uite temptingAnd importantly it was recommended by a friend So after some of the deeply obscure hit and miss books I ve read for the Read The World challenge I was hoping for something juicy and enjoyable Something that was not likely to feel like a choreSadly it didn t uite hit the spot Not because it doesn t have all those Brazilian clich s it starts with a character dying unexpectedly during carnival while dancing in full drag and the whole book is full of gamblers and whores and serenades and sex and food and humour and social satire and a bundle of other things besides Just reading my own description of it almost makes me want to read it again but the actual experience of reading it wasn t so greatNot that it s a bad book but it didn t ever uite grab me and after 550 pages any book that you re not actively enjoying is going to seem like a bit of a chore I d be hard pressed to identify any very glaring problems with it The characters seemed a trifle two dimensional particularly the two contrasting husbands who might as well be called Id and Superego or Apollonian and Dionysian and the plot is perhaps stretched a bit thin but it might just as well be that I wasn t in the right mood for it and tried to read too much of it when I was half asleep So while I m not about to give it a glowing endorsement I wouldn t want to be too negative either Pathetically non commital I know

How many stories can you tell in thirteen pages Jorge Amado can we be friends May I call you Jorge put five stories in thirteen pages four of them untold But even it these four stories were untold the reader would know what these stories were It is a demonstration of how to tell a story by not telling itThe main story is that about Maria Batista or Maria of the Veil narrated by Porciuncula a mulatto And despite the limited space with the words crowding each other in thirteen pages Maria of the Veil comes alive before your eyes dies and breaks your heart Now I have to stop here because it would be a shame if my review of Jorge s short story How Porciuncula the Mulatto Got the Corpse Off His Back would be longer than the story itself I read it because I wanted to know how this author sounds when he s not writing funny For this above discussed virtuosity I m giving him four starsFor Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands 1966 the laughter and entertainment I got here were the same as that I had in his much earlier work Gabriela Clove and Cinnamon 1958 This is something Authors usually do not have encores Especially like here where Gabriela and Dona Flor have the same comic theme and rural setting It s like an in your face repetition of a magic trick yet you get the same amazement you had when you saw it for the first timeBoth were love stories In Gabriela we have that between a cook the mulatto girl Gabriela and her unmarried employer a beautiful man Here it is a love triangle Vadinho a rascal and a gambler who is good at nothing except in bed where he is unforgettable Dona Flor Vadinho s wife a beauty and an excellent cook like Gabriela who becomes a young widow when Vadinho suddenly drops dead in a carnival while wearing a costume and a fake penis and Dr Teodoro a pharmacist well educated very caring and respectful even in bed Wednesdays and Saturdays only with a repeat performance every Saturday It was a love triangle because Vadinho Dona Flor s first love came back from the dead a ghost seen only by Dona FlorMy favorite scene here where I felt Jorge s romanticism at its height is the first honeymoon night of Dona Flor and her second husband Dr Teodoro It runs for about nine pages too long to reproduce here but when it ended with This was the night in Paripe with stars and the riding lights of the fishing skiffsI wrote in the available margin underneath Bravo Such was the beauty of Jorge s prose here but only appropriate for romantics like me For you hapless readers of this review you with your lascivious minds I have a better sampler one that can satisfy your predilections for naughtiness and likewise display Jorge s comic genius This one also involves a repeat a recurring character not exactly the same but can be described both in Gabriela and Dona Flor as the enchanting temptress at the windowIn Dona Flor her name is Dona Magnolia girlfriend of a policeman but she loves all sorts of men One day she casts her eyes upon the prim and proper Dr Teodoro Dona Flor s faithful husband and decides to test her charms on him Here goes the inimitable Jorge Four times a day at least as he came and went from his house to the drugstore and vice versa the splendid forty year old according to Dona Dinora s crystal ball passed beneath her window where in a low cut robe Dona Magnolia rested her insolent breasts as big and round as they were enticing The students of the Ipiranga Prep School located on the next street took to changing their itineraries unanimously parading in military formation under the window on which rested those breasts that could have suckled them all Dona Magnolia was touched so sweet in their school uniforms the smaller standing on tiptoe for the joy of seeing the dream of touching Let them suffer so they will learn Dona Magnolia reasoned pedagogically shifting to exhibit still better breasts and bust unfortunately the window frame somewhat limited the rest of her displayThe schoolboys suffered the workmen of the vicinity groaned delivery clerks young men like Roue who framed pictures old men like Alfredo occupied with his saints People came from far off from Se from Jiuitaia from Itapagipe from Tororo from Matatu making a pilgrimage just to see those celebrated wonders A beggar at three in the afternoon sharp under the hot sun crossed the street Alms for a poor man blind in both eyes The best alms was the divine sight in the window even running the danger of being unmasked snatching off his black glasses he opened his eyes wide feasting the two at the same time staring at those gifts of God the property of the police Even if the secret agent should pursue him and throw him into jail on charges of imposture panhandling even so he would feel it had been worth whileOnly Dr Teodoro cravatted his white suit stiffly starched did not raise his eyes to the heaven exposed to view in the window Bowing his head in a greeting that indicated his good breeding he raised his hat to say Good morning and Good afternoon indifferent to the outburst of breasts which Dona Magnolia had surrounded by lace to heighten the effect which should have rocked that man of marble back on his heels undoing that insulting conjugal fidelity Only he that big dark brute that handsome dog undoubtedly with a tool like a table leg only he went by without showing any sign of impression delight ecstasy without seeing without even looking at that sea of breasts Ah that was too much an insulting offense an unbearable challengeMonogamous Dona Dinora had affirmed conversant with all the details of the doctor s life He was not a person to be unfaithful to his wife he had not even been so with Tavinha Manemolencia a prostitute though restricted as to her clientele Dona Magnolia had confidence in her charms My dear fortuneteller take note write down what I am saying there is no such thing as a monogamous man we know that you and I Look into your crystal ball and if it is to be trusted it will reveal to you the doctor in a brothel bed that of Sobrinha to be exact with your humble servant Magnolia Fatima das Neves at her best beside himSo the doctor was not moved by the swooning eyes of his neighbor by her seductive voice answering her greeting with her breasts resting on the windowsill and the desire of the young men growing by day and by night the drooling of the old men Dona Magnolia had other arms which she could use and she was taking the offensive at onceThus one sultry afternoon when the air was heavy with desire inviting to the delights of bed and lullabies Dona Magnolia entered the swinging doors of the pharmacy carrying in her hand a box of injections to be used as a new temptation of St Anthony In a thin summer dress she went lavishing her riches prodigally Doctor could you give me an injection Dr Teodoro was measuring nitrates in his laboratory his starched white coat making him look even taller and giving him a kind of scientific dignity With a smile she held out the box of injections Taking it he put it on the table and said Just a minute Dona Magnolia stood there sizing him up pleased every minute What a man of good age strong brave She sighed and he leaving his powders and prescription raised his eyes to her You have a pain Ah Mr Doctor and she smiled as though to say that her pain was killing her and he was the cause of it An injection He examined the bottle A vitamin compoundto keep your balancethese new medicines What balance madame and he smiled politely as though he considered those treatments a waste of time and money It s my nerves doctor I am so sensitive you have no idea He picked up a needle with a pair of tweezers lifting it out of the sterilizer while he drew the liuid into the syringe calmly and without haste one thing at a time and everything in its place A motto which hung over his worktable summed up his principles A place for everything and everything in its place Dona Magnolia read it she knew about a thing and the place for it and she eyed the doctor maliciously How sure he was of himself that big shotHe dipped a wad of cotton into alcohol and raised the syringe Please roll up your sleeve In a voice both coy and malicious Dona Magnolia answered Not in the arm doctor not in the arm He pulled the curtain across She raised her skirt displaying before the doctor s eyes riches even larger and tempting than those exhibited every day at the window What a backside like that of a flying antShe did not even feel the prick of the needle Dr Teodoro had such a light and steady hand The alcohol soaked cotton the doctor rubbed her skin with gave her a pleasant sensation A drop of alcohol ran down her thigh and she sighed againOnce Dr Teodoro mistook the meaning of that gentle moan Where does it hurt you Still holding up the hem of her dress showing haunches nobody had ever been able to resist before Dona Magnolia looked the distinguished personage straight in the eye Is it possible that you don t understand that you don t understand anything He really didn t Understand what Now get hold of this book and find out for yourself what happens next
