Tent of Miracles by Jorge Amado

"Tent of Miracles" is a satirical novel that explores the themes of racism, colonialism, and the power of knowledge. The story revolves around the life of a poor, mixed-race Bahian scholar who is unrecognized in his own land but becomes a posthumous celebrity when a Nobel laureate praises his work. This sudden fame brings attention to his writings and his message against racial discrimination, and the book also portrays the vibrant culture and diversity of Bahia, Brazil.
