Amado Jorge

The text Amado Jorge, as the title speaks for itself, depicts the romantic universe of the Bahian writer, by inserting him into the story of a boy who obsessively starts looking for the mother he has never met. Son to colonel Bonfim, the boy would have, as his mother, one of the many prostitutes who have all been in bed with his father. But, which one of them? The narrative takes a frenetic pace when the boy discovers that his father, future president of Brazil, is not his father. With the help of Jorge Amado’s characters, mainly Vadinho, he goes searching not only after his mother but also his real father, taking the story into a surprising twist.
