"Eat Brazil. That is the credo of this book. Do not try to understand its culture, for that would be a little absurd. Do not try to comprehend its economy or to grasp its order, for that is hopeless. There is only one way to go. Eat Brazil up. Consume its landscape. Devour its cities. Make a ceremony of it. Slice the masses into sacral pieces and invent ritual sequences. Learn, as the Brazilians have learned, to digest this country as it is--sweet and promiscuous, crude and unapproachable, enormous and endless. Accept the supremacy of the body sacrosanct. We Europeans must summon up our courage and relinquish our resistance. This book offers its help, in the form of a mental dinner"--Cover flap blurb
