Synopses & Reviews
Next time you're traveling or just chattin' in Portuguese with your friends, drop the textbook formality and bust out with expressions they never teach you in school, including:
Explicit sex terms
Raw swear words
Dirty Portuguese teaches the casual expressions heard every day on the streets of Brazil:
What's up? — Tudo bem?
Are those fake boobs? — Você tem silicone no peito?
I need to take a piss. — Preciso mijar.
That goalie is so weak. — Esse goleiro é uma mãe.
Shit's about to go down! — O coro vai comer!
I'm smashed. — Tô bebum.
Let's fuck like animals. — Vamos trepar como animais.
Dirty Portuguese present phrases for every scenario, like reminding the taxi driver that it's only a 10-real ride from Copacabana beach back to your pousada. It also includes a section on native banter that helps readers make friends over caiparinhas and convince a local baiana that it's all right to spice up their acarajé with pimenta. Dirty Portuguese even features sweet words to entice a Carnaval beauty to become your new girlfriend — maybe even all the way until Lent.
About the Author
Nati Vale is a native of Puerto Rico with a Bahian swing in her step. She currently lives in Berkeley, California, where she attempts to finish her dissertation one paragraph at a time.
Alice Rose is a Brazil enthusiast who, while she is not working on her Bahian accent, is digging for dinosaur bones in her backyard in Oakland, California.
Pedro A. Cabral discovered Brazil in 1500. He spent most of his life in Salvador, Brazil. Due to GPS technology and Google Maps, Cabral has been forced to give up his love for exploration and has retired to the tame Oakland, California, where he has dedicated himself to the art of capoeira.
