Read full description of the books:



Agosto de 1954. Um mês de crimes estarrecedores, de atentados políticos, de lutas infames pelo poder. Um mês de paixões, de gestos de desespero e de loucura.
Um mês de multidões vociferantes nas ruas. Um mês de trágicas ilusões, encerrado pela inalterabilidade do cotidiano - a vida continua.

Em 1º de agosto de 1954, um empresário é assassinado no Rio de Janeiro. Enquanto isso, o chefe da guarda pessoal de Getúlio Vargas planeja um atentado contra o jornalista Carlos Lacerda - a crise política gerada culminaria no suicídio de Vargas.

Misturando realidade e ficção com maestria, Rubem Fonseca relembra um mês marcante para a história do país.

Após o extraordinário sucesso de Vastas emoções e pensamentos imperfeitos, Rubem Fonseca nos trouxe Agosto, um romance feito de muitas histórias: pessoais, passionais, policiais, políticas, patéticas, heróicas, reais, fictícias.

Mas, graças ao imenso talento narrativo de seu autor, Agosto é antes de tudo uma brilhante, irônica e dramática celebração literária.

Read information about the author

Ebook Agosto read Online! He is an important brazilian writer (novelist, short story writer and screenwriter), born in Juiz de Fora, state of Minas Gerais, but he lived for most of his life in Rio de Janeiro. In 1952, he started his career in the police and became a policy commissioner. Even though, he refuses to do interviews and is a very reclusive person, much like Thomas Pynchon, who is a personal friend of Fonseca.
His writing is pretty dark and gritty, filled with violence and sexual content, and it usually happens in a very urban setting. He says that a writer should have the courage to show what most people are afraid to say. His work is considered groundbreaking in Brazilian literature, up until then mostly focused on rural settings and usually treating cities with a very biased point-of-view. Almost all Brazilian contemporary writers acknowledge Fonseca's importance, and quite a few authors from the newer generation, such as Patrícia Melo or Luis Ruffato, say that he's a huge influence.
He started his career with short stories, and they are usually considered to be the best part of his work. His first popular novel was "A Grande Arte" (High Art), but "Agosto" is usually considered to be his best work.
In 2003, he won the Camões Prize - considered to be the most important award in the Portuguese language - and the Juan Rulfo Prize - award for Latin American and the Caribbean literature.
