    The devil to pay in the backlands, Joćo Guimarćes Rosa

    Hello everybody!
    I'd like to know if anyone here has read the english translation to Guimarćes Rosa's masterpiece Grande Sertćo: Veredas, titled in english as "The devil to pay in the backlands". It is undoubtedly my favourite book but I am very curious to know how do english readers feel about it.

    I've heard about it but it is not very well known outside brazil. From what I read, it doesn't work well in translation since it is a complex work like Ulysses.
