Chico Buarque is a very talented Brazilian musician as well as writer. In this very well-received book, the protagonist discovers an old letter inside one of his father´s books.
"The letter reveals an illicit affair his father carried on while posted in Nazi-era Berlin, an affair that resulted in the birth of a baby boy. The child, along with his mother, vanished into the chaos of the Second World War. Ciccio develops a fascination for his mysterious German brother: a fixation that becomes a mission, both comical and courageous, pursued over decades, through dead ends and embarrassments and cases of mistaken identity."(
We will meet at Dois Trópicos, a very cool, pretty place with tasty food.
