House of the Fortunate Buddhas

João Ubaldo Ribeiro
Translated by Clifford E. Landers

Set in 1940s and ’50s provincial Brazil, House of the Fortunate Buddhas is perhaps most startling for its fiery, uninhibited, and highly compelling narrator. By force of her intelligence, courage, and strength of will, she achieves an unlikely liberation of both mind and body, and her sardonic, frank—some have called it pornographic—monologue is an unforgettable work of literary ventriloquism, telling the story of one woman’s journey toward fulfillment.

House of the Fortunate Buddhas was written as part of a popular series of novels on the Seven Deadly Sins, commissioned by the leading Brazilian publishing house Editora Objetiva. Given his choice of sins, Ribeiro chose lust.
