"First published as Lavoura Arcaica in 1975"
A Brazilian master novelist in English at last. For André, a young man growing up on a farm in Brazil, life consists of. He loves the land, fears his austere, pious father, who preaches from the head of the table as if from a pulpit, and loathes himself as he begins to harbor shameful feelings for his sister Ana. Lyrical and sensual, written with biblical intensity, this classic Brazilian coming-of-age novel follows Andrés tormented path. He falls into the comforting embrace of liquor as in his psychological and sexual awakening he must choose between body and soul, obligation and freedom.
