"In an age of borders, Chico Buarque's masterpiece Budapest dissolves frontiers, creating an odd new world, where everything is being constantly reborn: words, writing, language, loss, and, above all, love. . . . I can think of no contemporary English language novel as joyful, daring, and innovative-nor as great a pleasure to read." -Richard Flanagan, author of Gould's Book of Fish "Budapest is a deeply beautiful book, and a masterpiece of narrative deftness. . . . It is a novel wise about many things-migration, language, culture, human nature-but its compassion is its greatest wisdom." -Anne Michaels "Chico Buarque has crossed a chasm with his writing, and arrived at the other side. To the side where one finds work executed with mastery . . . something new has happened in Brazil with this book." -José Saramago "Budapest is a labyrinth of mirrors whose resolution comes, not in the plot, but in the words, like in poems." -Caetano Veloso
