    1. Boozer, Broads & Buddies Win, Lose FiefdomTexas is not the only place carved out of another country by more aggressive settlers far from any capital city. Marcio Souza's tale of the "Empire of Acre", created by Brazilian filibusters in a remote part of northern Bolivia in the basin, may or may not have much to do with Texan history, but the idea is at least similar. THE EMPEROR OF THE relates the picaresque adventures of a Spanish vagabond in the literary style of the 19th century popular [...]


    2. A curious little book by the Brazilian writer Marcio Souza who has a certain renown as one of the leading literary figures of the . This was his first novel published back in the 1970s; my Abacus edition, translated wonderfully by Thomas Colchie, dates from 1982. What's it all about? Essentially it's a picaresque adventure - the story of one Luis Galvez, a native of Cadiz seeking his fortune in South America during the rubber boom of the late 1890s. Souza adopts the “Flashman” conceit, claim [...]


    3. An adventure story, partly a historical novel and partly a farce, set in the rubber boom world of the basin in the very late 1800’s. Our main character is quite a ladies’ man. He prefers married women, especially young ones married to elderly wealthy gentlemen, but in a pinch, the mayor’s wife, a stage actress, or a wayward nun will do. So there’s a lot of farcical episodes of sneaking out of bedroom windows and being on the run from the police and angry husbands.The main character gets [...]


    4. The Emperor of the is a fictionalised account of some real events surrounding the creation of the short lived independent state of Acre in Brazil around the year 1898. It is narrated by Luis Galvez, an adventurer and womaniser, who following some strange events is persuaded to lead the campaign to free Acre, a latex rubber state and part of Bolivia. Along the way Galvez meets, loves and then saves a nun, Joana who becomes his main revolutionary partner. There are some odd characters related to [...]


    5. This novel tells the tale of a Luiz Galvez and his attempts at revolutionizing the 's land of Acre with a new nation in the very late 1800s. The story grasped me from the beginning and began to mingle with my day to day thoughts until I finally got to the end. Kind of reminding me of the colonial adventure novels by Joseph Conrad, this book enlightens us of the exploitation of areas beyond the history that can sometimes tend to be solely accredited to Africa. Although noted by Souza that some de [...]


    6. Would have enjoyed this more as a short story. The first half of the book centers on main characters' sexual conquests in an egotistical telling. There are interesting bits in this farcical story of revolution during the ian rubber boom, but found much of this book, specifically the first half to be incredibly boring.


    7. Picaresque satire of governmental corruption and avaricious exploitation of the ian rainforest in the 1890s that is as much about the 1970s as it is about the establishment of the short-lived Independent State of Acre. Still relevant today.
