Considered one of the all-time great western writers, Machado de Assis is in the same league as Shakespeare, Voltaire and Tolstoy.
The Miss Dollar collection brings readers 10 short stories, and is one of Machado’s later works. Using simple, everyday language, the great Brazilian author touches on topics such as modernism, feminism and the development of Brazil’s socioeconomic structure, from the Empire to the Republic.
Now, finally, this set of short stories has been officially translated into English, thanks to the New London Librarium. They have also translated another collection – Ex-Cathedra – which contains 21 stories.
