Summary
"As an actor, Mario Cardoso has everything going for him: acclaim, an elevated lifestyle, artistic achievement. His apex will be staging a production of Shakespeare's masterpiece King Lear. Everything is going brilliantly until, seeing his co-star dressed as a chicken with a diaper, he breaks down in hysterical laughter, and does so again in each subsequent performance. Mario's troubles worsen when he receives a call reporting that his mother has been found unconscious on a beach in Rio. He abandons Lear and returns to her--and enters a swirl of family drama he'd determined to leave behind. His first shot at recovering his career comes in the guise of a biblical role in an evangelical TV station's production of a soap opera: Sodoma. He has a torrid affair, finds love, and lands a deal with the country's biggest TV network for steady work in soap operas. Mario's new life brings fame and money that theater could never match--but compromises he's made in the past come snarling back to bite him, and his next stage set will be one he never anticipated. With the wicked humor and fleet-footed pace that made her novel The End a runaway bestseller in Brazil and a critical hit in the U.S., Fernanda Torres's Glory and its Litany of Horrors is a wise and funny send-up of a generation that witnessed their ideas of art fall into the hands of the market, and their ideas of the future proven to be as illusory as theater"--source not specified
