9780297866268: Brazil

Michael Palin, the No. 1 bestselling author, explores an exotic country now a global superpower. Brazil is one of the four new global super powers with its vast natural resources and burgeoning industries. Half a continent in size and a potent mix of races, religions and cultures, of unexplored wildernesses and bustling modern cities, it is also one of the few countries Michael Palin has never fully travelled. With the next Olympics to be held in Rio in 2016 and the World Cup in Brazil in 2014, international attention will be on Brazil as never before. Michael Palin's timely book and series take a closer look at a remarkable new force on the world scene. From the Venezuelan border and the forests of the Lost World where he encounters the Yanomami tribe and their ongoing territorial war with the gold miners, Michael Palin explores this vast and disparate nation in his inimitable way. He journeys into the heart of the Amazon rainforest. He travels down the North-East coast to meet the descendents of African slaves with their vibrant culture of rituals, festivals and music. He visits the shanty towns of Rio and the beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema. He goes to Sao Paolo where the rich commute by helicopter. He travels South to meet German and Japanese communities, meets supermodels in the making and wealthy gauchos in the Pantanal before ending his journey at the spectacular Iguacu Falls.

About the Author :

Michael Palin established his reputation with MONTY PYTHON'S FLYING CIRCUS and RIPPING YARNS. His work also includes several films with Monty Python, as well as THE MISSIONARY, A PRIVATE FUNCTION, an award-winning performance as the hapless Ken in A FISH CALLED WANDA and, more recently, AMERICAN FRIENDS and FIERCE CREATURES. His television credits include two films for the BBC's GREAT RAILWAY JOURNEYS, the plays EAST OF IPSWICH and NUMBER 27, and Alan Bleasdale's GBH. He has written books to accompany his six very successful travel series, AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS, POLE TO POLE, FULL CIRCLE, HEMINGWAY ADVENTURE, SAHARA and HIMALAYA.

Review :

Simply because he is on television, people forget how well Michael Palin writes, as evidenced in Brazil. A vivid synoptic take on a vast, unpredictable country, this book holds its own against more self-consciously literary works about Brazil. -- Giles Foden CONDE NAST TRAVELLER UK A fascinating picture of a nation that, through the three cultural markers of language, music and food, is triumphantly self-defined and ceaselessly inventive. Palin does his job as a travel writer very well indeed. THE INDEPENDENT Michael Palin brings his trademark charm and enthusiasm to this timely introduction to the country that is about to host the World Cup and the next Olympic Games. THE GOOD BOOK GUIDE Full of warmth and humour, Palin's latest offering is a vibrant account of people he meets as he travels around the vast nation - a must-read for anyone heading to this year's World Cup or the Rio Olympics in 2016 THE INDEPENDENT '10 best South America travel books' The prose of his travel writing is... economical, descriptive and rarely repetitive, making for a fluid, compulsive and engrossing read. ENTERTAINMENT FOCUS Palin does his job as a travel writer very well indeed. He knows how to entertain the reader at first, resists any temptation to lecture, then builds up a slow boil of interest before teasing out some answers through some skilful interviewing. The resulting mosaic of opinions draws out a fascinating composite picture of a nation. -- Barnaby Rogerson THE INDEPENDENT Michael Palin's Brazil is a good primer, written in the same chatty style as he uses in the television series THE DAILY TELEGRAPH The prose of his travel writing is... economical, descriptive and rarely repetitive, making for a fluid, compulsive and engrossing read.
