      Description

      'BRAZILIAN PSYCHO is a riveting and explosive masterpiece of political crime fiction that deserves to share the shelf with AMERICAN TABLOID, THE POWER OF THE DOG and A BRIEF HISTORY OF SEVEN KILLINGS, and confirms Joe Thomas as one of our very best contemporary crime writers.' David Peace

      'Complex and compelling, and shot through with moments of horror and beauty, BRAZILIAN PSYCHO is a magnificent achievement.' The Times Crime Club

      'Fans of Don Winslow and James Ellroy's epic forays into the societal effects of systematic dysfunction and corruption will want to check this out' Publishers Weekly

      Brazil, 1 January 2003: President Luis Inacio 'Lula' da Silva begins fifteen years of left-wing government.

      1 January 2019: Jair Bolsonaro is inaugurated, a president of the populist right.

      How did it come to this?

      A blockbusting novel of our times, Brazilian Psychointroduces and completes Joe Thomas's acclaimed Sao Paulo quartet. Over sixteen years, a diverse cast of characters live through the unfolding social and political drama, setting in motion a whirlwind of plots and counterplots: the murder of a British school headmaster and the consequent cover-up; the chaos and score-settling of the PCC drug gang rebellion over the Mothers' Day weekend of 2006; a copycat serial killer; the secret international funding of nationwide anti-government protests; the bribes, kickbacks and shakedowns of the Mensalao and Lava Jato political corruption scandals, the biggest in Brazilian history

      Brazilian Psycho weaves social crime fiction, historical fact, and personal experience to record the radical tale of one of the world's most fascinating, glamorous, corrupt, violent, and thrilling cities.

      Description

      April 2020 marks 500 years since Raphael's death, who is featured in this book.

      This book showcases, in full color, the works of one hundred painters who represent eight centuries of the European tradition: from Giotto in the 13th century to Hockney in the 21st.

      Arranged alphabetically for easy reference, each artist occupies a double-page spread that contains a selection of pictures, accessible text and a biographical timeline.

      The secrets of the masterpieces revealed: does Van Eyck's Arnolfini Marriage portray a secret sadness? What political purpose did Rubens' fat, rosy models serve? And did Seurat's pointillist experiment really work?

      Bio
      Charlotte Gerlings was born in Reading, Berkshire. She graduated in Publishing from Oxford Polytechnic (now Oxford Brookes University) and since then has worked as a book designer, writer and editor. She lives in South West London and is currently studying at Wimbledon School of Art for her MA in Fine Art.
