Summary
  • Ghost of prominent Brazilian weighs good against bad and balances the books of his life on earth
  • An 1880s novel in which--after his death--a wealthy Brazilian records his life for posterity. The spirit of Bras Cubas describes his experience on earth in politics, an affair with the wife of a friend, and his experiments to find a poultice to cure all ills
  • "I am a deceased writer not in the sense of one who has written and is now deceased, but in the sense of one who has died and is now writing." So begins the posthumous memoir of Braz Cubas, a wealthy nineteenth-century Brazilian. While the grave may have given Cubas the distance to examine his rather undistinguished life, it has certainly not dampened his sense of humour. Epitaph of a Small Winner is one of the wittiest self-portraits in literary history
