ABOUT THIS BOOK

La clásica historia de amor prohibido de la literatura latinoamericana.

En 1925, la riqueza producida por el cacao ha permitido el desarrollo económico de Ilheús, pero la costumbres de sus habitantes todavía son primitivas y violentas. En este pueblo, el árabe Nacib Saad, desesperado al perder al cocinero de su popular café, contrata a la bella mulata Gabriela que, para su sorpresa, resultará ser no sólo una gran cocinera sino un encantador beneficio para su negocio. Pero, ¿qué diría la gente si Nacib se casara con ella?

Gabriela perdurará en la literatura como una hermosa figura femenina, simple y espontánea, mas allá del bien y del mal. Con su lirismo inigualable, Jorge Amado ha transmitido al personaje las cualidades típicas del pueblo brasileño: ternura, sensualidad sin malicia, alegría envolvente, feliz primitivismo. Y el romance conmovedor de Nacib y Gabriela se ubicará, sin duda, en la galería de los amantes célebres de la historia de la literatura.
