The novelist Jorge Amado once told the Brazilian newspaper, Folha de S. Paulo, ‘In Europe, I’ve been called a master, but it’s when I’m walking the streets of Salvador that I feel at home.’ Amado’s passion for Brazil, and for its history, culture and the minutiae of its street life, clearly comes across in his novels, such as Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands and The Violent Land. And although many of his works are set in Salvador, his stories speak volumes to people everywhere.

Amado, who died in 2001, would have turned 100 on 10 August, and the excellent Museu da Língua Portuguesa – Museum of the Portuguese Language – is anticipating the centenary with the exhibition ‘Jorge Amado e Universal’ (‘Jorge Amado/Beloved and Universal’). The exhibition aims to portray the many different aspects of the author’s life and works, in spaces decorated to evoke the author’s beloved Bahia.
