Dona Flor and Her Two


Thank you! Slyly decorated with lyrical recipes from the cooking school of Dona Flor, this is the incredible record of that plumply inviting, earnest, and modest woman and her two husbands--devil and saint. First husband Vadinho, he who expired at the prime of manhood, apparently forever during a carnival Bacchanalia, was a rogue--insatiable gambler, spirited habitue of palaces of pleasure, a consumer of his wife's money and patience, a hoodwinker, maneuverer, who maddeningly drew from the modesty of Dona Flor the Ultimate Realization in the meadows of the marital bed. Teodoro, the druggist, the decent, good and noble, succeeded Vadinho. And what finer, more tender, more considerate husband could one wish, although his lovemaking, sheltering but somehow as inappropriate as an umbrella, could cause this devoted, respectable matron to call forth from the dead--Vadinho. And in the flesh he appears, persistent, mocking, up to all sorts of mad tricks with his terrified former gambling companions--and irresistible. Just before he returns to the nether world after the gods have battled over Bahia, Vadinho assures Dona Flor that the two husbands both fill the needs of an admirable wife.

By Ted Gioia The basic plot could hardly be more familiar. Novelists have exhausted almost every twist in this scenario, and adapted the story line over the decades in response to changing tastes and values of their readers. Sometimes the alluring cad turns out to have a heart of gold Pride and Prejudice or the respectable, safe husband possesses an ugly dark side Middlemarch. Sometimes the young lady stumbles into the right choice Emma or boldly rushes into the wrong one The Portrait of a Lady. Or learns, to her dismay, that the choice is no longer hers to make Gone with the Wind. There is a slight complication, however. One of her two husbands—the most lively and passionate one—happens to be dead.
