1 Review
Jorge Amado escreveu O Gato Malhado e a Andorinha Sinhá, em 1948, para o seu filho João Jorge, quando este completou um ano de idade. O texto andou perdido, e só em 1978 conheceu a sua primeira edição, depois de ter sido recuperado pelo seu filho e levado a Carybé para o ilustrar. Com ilustrações belíssimas, para um belíssimo texto, a história de amor do Gato Malhado e da Andorinha Sinhá continua a correr mundo fazendo as delícias de leitores de todas as idades.

About the author (2010)

Jorge Amado--novelist, journalist, lawyer--was born in 1912, the son of a cacao planter, in Ilheus, south of Salvador, the provincial capital of Gabriela, Clove and Cinnamon. His first novel, Cacao, was published when he was nineteen. It was an impassioned plea for social justice for the workers on Bahian cacao plantations; and his novels of the thirties and forties would continue to dramatize class struggle. Not until the 1950s did he write his great literary comic novels--Gabriela, Clove and Cinnamon, and Dona Flor and her Two Husbands--which take aim at the full spectrum of society even as they pay ebullient tribute to the region of his birth. One of the most reknowned writers of the Latin American boom of the sixties, Amado has been translated into more than 35 languages. A highly successful film version of Dona Flor was produced in Brazil in 1976. He died in 2001.
