About

From the Publisher

Brazilian Joaquim Maria Machado de Assis was the finest storyteller of nineteenth-century Latin America. "Midnight Mass and Other Stories" offers a selection of Machado's tales, from the oft-translated and sly erotic title story, a classic of Brazilian literature, to such brief ironic tales, not previously translated into English, as "A Game," "Coimbra the Clerk," and "Sooner the Tarpeian Rock." Also included is "Botany Lesson," Machado's most successful work for the stage.
