Description

A magical retelling of the myth of Eldorado, by Brazil's greatest writer. The Enchanted City has inhabited the fevered dreams of many European navigators and consquisitadores, but all have been unable to find it on the map. Some have linked it to Manaus in the Amazon Basin, and it is here that Arminto Cordovil lives with his father Amando in a white mansion. Theirs is a relationship full of passion and limitless ambition. Separating father, and son is a remarkable cast of characters, from Angelina, the dead mother, to Denisio, the infernal boatman, and, at the centre, Dinuara, a girl who bewitches Arminto and dreams of Eldorado . Orphans of Eldorado is a rich and magical fable that beautifully captures the atmosphere of the steamy, lush Amazonian world.
