JORGE AMADO (1912-2001) was a Brazilian writer whose modernist stories of life in the eastern state of Bahia won captured the public imagination and international acclaim.  Translated into 49 languages, his books reflect Brazil's culture, inequalities and contradictions, and have been adapted into films, theatrical works and TV programs.Amado's books stress Brazil's African heritage, and the mixing of races that defines the country's population, as positive values.  His novels are populated by fishermen, street children, caretakers, prostitutes, immigrants, working men and women -- and those who exploited them.  They are accessible, with plenty of action and melodrama, and written in colloquial, and at times ribald, language.  "I'm under no illusions about the importance of my work," Amado once said. "But if it has any worth, it is that it truly reflects the Brazilian people."Having grown up on a cacao plantation, several early works emphasize the exploitation and misery of the migrant blacks, mulattoes, and poor whites who harvest the crop on such plantations and generally expressing communist solutions to social problems.  The best of these works, THE VIOLENT LAND (1942), about the struggle of rival planters, has the primitive grandeur of a folk saga.Amado's literary career paralleled a career in radical politics that won him election to the Constituent Assembly as a federal deputy representing the Communist Party of Brazil.  He was imprisoned and periodically exiled for his leftist activities.  Many of his works were banned in Brazil and Portugal, but he gained an international reputation with the publication of JUBIABÁ (1935), which was hailed by Albert Camus as “a magnificent and haunting” book. He abandoned active political life in 1954 but continued to produce novels with facility, most of them picaresque, ribald tales of Bahian city life, especially that of the racially conglomerate lower classes.  His new creative phase, with more humour and less ideology, began with GABRIELA, CLOVE AND CINNAMON (1958), which was described by Jean-Paul Sartre as "the best example of a folk novel".  Amado abandoned, in part, the realism and the social themes of his early works, producing a series of novels focusing mainly on feminine characters, devoted to a kind of smiling celebration of the traditions and the beauties of Bahia.  In addition to GABRIELA these novels included DONA FLOR AND HER TWO HUSBANDS (1966) and TEREZA BATISTA (1972), both of which preserve Amado's political attitude in their satire.The following books are in PDF or ePUB format as indicated:* Captains of the Sands (Penguin, 2013).
