Machado de Assis (1839-1908), “The Wizard of Cosme Velho” from Rio de Janeiro, has been widely revered by American writers from Susan Sontag to Woody Allen and was a contemporary of Mark Twain and Henry James. He came closer, perhaps, then any other writer to transforming reading itself into an act of Theatre.
