By Eca de Queiroz
A story of bourgeois sexual folly and hypocrisy in nineteenth-century Lisbon. Eca describes a gallery of brilliant characters:
* Bazilio the clever villain
* Jorge the conceited, uxorious husband
* Luiza the bored, foolish spouse
* Juliana, the obvious, determined maid
* Leopoldina, 'the Ever-Open Door'
* the voluminous Dona Felicidade, and lots of extra.
The e-book aroused a scandal for its frank descriptions of intercourse and wish. What nonetheless grips the reader is the author's acute portrayal of the restrictions imposed on males and, in particular, ladies.
