O País do Carnaval is the first novel by Jorge Amado (Prémio Camões 1994), published when he was just 18 years old, in 1931. A critical portrait of the festive and contradictory image of Brazil, from the point of view of the character Paulo Rigger, a tormented Brazilian by the existential restlessness that, after seven years in Paris, returns to a country with which he does not identify. Considered subversive, O País do Carnaval was among the books by Jorge Amado that were burned in a public square in Salvador, by order of the Estado Novo police, in 1937.
