House of the Fortunate Buddhas
Author: João Ubaldo Ribeiro, Clifford E. Landers
Publisher: Dalkey Archive Press
Set in 1940s and '50s provincial Brazil, House of the Fortunate Buddhas is perhaps most startling for it fiery, uninhibited, and highly compelling narrator. By force of her intelligence, courage, and strength of will, she achieves an unlikely liberation of both mind and body, and her sardonic, frank—some have called it pornographic—monologue is an unforgettable work of literary ventriloquism, telling the story of one woman's journey toward fulfillment. From the book: “I decided to give my testimony orally, instead of writing it down, for several reasons, the major one being arthritis. No, let's cut that last line out! I don't have arthritis, and even if I did, I certainly wouldn't let any get into my book. So, fine: preface. I decided to give my testimony orally instead of in writing mainly because it's impossible to write about sex, at least in Portuguese, without coming off like a prostitute who's just been asked to 'talk dirty' for the twentieth time in the same day . . ." House of the Fortunate Buddhas has been translated into French (winning the Grinzane Cavour Prize), Italian, and Spanish, and was adapted into a hit one-woman play in Brazil.
Angustias Walton é uma jovem bonita, mas se veste como um corvo, sempre com cores pouco favorecedoras ou de preto como se guardasse um luto eterno; seu penteado, puxado até o ponto de doer, a faz parecer uma velha solteirona, quando é apenas uma garota de 18 anos. Sua mãe encarregou-se de lhe dizer toda a vida que é fruto do pecado e lhe inculcou um amor excessivo pela religião, assim como o temor pelas baixas paixões que são resultado de sentimentos pouco úteis como o amor. Por isso ela teme esse sentimento, como também a tudo o que provenha dele. Não quer se casar, mas contra a sua vontade, seus tios a enviam para Londres para que consiga um marido e ela obedientemente vai contra seus próprios desejos, sem saber que lá encontraria a fonte de suas maiores tristezas e talvez... o amor. Isaac St. John, o libertino conde de Beaufort, é um homem de muitas mulheres, o que lhe trouxe uma terrível reputação de mulherengo e as mães das debutantes já nem se dão ao trabalho de convidá-lo para os eventos ou apresentá-lo a suas filhas. Certo dia, conhece na casa de seus amigos, os marqueses de Willmington, uma jovem feia, que se veste de forma horrível e que passa todo o tempo contestando o que ele diz. Antagoniza com ela desde a primeira vez que se falam, mas com o tempo começa a ver debaixo dessa aparência horrorosa e sem saber como, se encontra sentindo algo mais por ela. Aí é que começam os problemas para Isaac, já que graças ao seu recém-descoberto interesse pelo bem-estar da senhorita Walton, sua vida se modificará por completo.
