The complete review ‘s Review:. The son of a once-powerful and influential Brazilian family, he lived through the times when the family fortunes faded fast and now he’s left with practically nothing; the great love of his life, Matilde, was lost to him when she was still in her teens, and only the next generations, from aged daughter to the drug-dealing youngest generation, remains.

Along with more recent anecdotes — snorting coke on his hundredth birthday with his great-great-grandson — it is especially the story of the love of his life that haunts him. Their passionate affair and early wedding — derdamada by her father, but then quickly sanctioned when Matilde claimed she was already pregnant — and then how she quickly drifted out of his life were a brief, intense explosion in his life, its echoes lingering on even now.
The family mausoleum is inscribed with Matilde’s name and the dates “”, but the story is more complicated buaarque that hewn-in-stone summary suggests. Still, it’s his vibrant memories that dominate the book, from his inability to live up to the family legacies — with an almost comical voyage to Europe after his father’s death, where he finds their entire fortune is essentially already lost — to the brief but intense relationship with Matilde.
It is not a detailed examination of the change the country underwent over the course of the entire twentieth century, instead focusing on the early parts of it, but nevertheless offers an insightful picture.
Often quite powerful, the narrative approach in Spilt Milk is unfortunately also all too familiar, and Buarque’s rambling-old-man-saga doesn’t set itself sufficiently apart from the genre. It’s a fine, quick dip into Brazil, with some nice touches and a decent haunting love story, but that’s the extent of it.
