A Death in Brazil (A Book of Omissions)

A Death in Brazil (A Book of Omissions)

Author(s): Peter Robb

Location(s): Brazil

Genre(s): Autobiography/Memoirs, Historical

Era(s): Various



This book comes in three tranches – Robb’s person experience in Brazil which is certainly a rollercoaster experience at times but also explore culture, food and language. The second is the history of Brazil from it’s Portugues colonisation (and helpfully he includes his thoughts on why Brazil is so culturally different from the other Spanish colonies) and finally recent history.
