Sea of Death describes the sea’s unconquerable mysteries and the robust yearnings of seafaring men—a world of storms and smugglers, of reckless passion and star-crossed love

Winning the Game and Other Stories

With an unflinching, unsentimental eye and a soupçon of black humor, Fonseca chronicles the foibles, manias, and obsessions of the people of Brazil’s metropolises
