Joaquim Maria Machado de Assis - Posthumous Memoirs of Brás Cubas

"Some say it is a novel but the author, the Brazilian Joaquim Maria Machado de Assis (1839-1908) says that is is a memoir. However, a memoir is supposed to be fiction. But how could this be fiction if it was written by the protagonist, the Brazilian rich and indolent Bras Cubas after his death? Dead people cannot write a novel"

"i don't laugh from books. i don't like funny books."

"Brazil have certainly produced fantastic writers, but I fail to miss to point of this book"
