Summary
Set in the southeastern state of Minas Gerais, the novel relates the dissolution of a once proud patriarchal family that blames its ruin on the marriage of its youngest son, Valdo, to Nina - a vibrant, unpredictable and incendiary young woman whose very existence seems to depend on the destruction of the household. This family's downfall, peppered by stories of decadence, adultery, incest and madness, is related through a variety of narrative devices, including letters, diaries, memoirs, statements, confessions and accounts penned by the various characters
