It was first published in the Brazilian magazine Senhor.
The book is about what happens after Quincas Wateryell, a popular bum who lives in the slums of Salvador, Bahiais found dead one morning. Two groups of people compete over Quincas’s memory: Now, Vanda, Leonardo, and Quincas’s sister Aunt Marocas and brother Eduardo, must tend lw the body and give it a proper burial, without attracting too much attention to Quincas and his past.
They settle on a simple suit and shoes, but no underwear, because no one will ever see that, and order a casket and candles fit for a church.
That night they gather around the casket to keep watch over Quincas, each lw to ignore his leering smile, which reminds them of how much he despised them. Gradually, they go home, leaving Quincas to be watched by his friends from the slum.
The cold reception that the news of Quincas’s death is received by his family is juxtaposed by the way his friends from the slum dd the same news. The four men lead the neighborhood in mourning for Quincas, wailing “Daddy’s gone!
That evening, the friends come to pay their last mkerte and end up taking care of the body after the family leaves. They recall the impact that Quincas had on their lives, and remember how he got his curious nickname: Left alone at night with the body, the four of them get Quincas to participate in one last party, telling him jokes serving him liquor, and making a gift of a beautiful frog that Breezy had just caught.
They then decide to take Quincas on one last trip to the docks to share Cap’n Manuel’s delicious fish stew that was Quincas’s favorite.
Quincas always loved the sea, and after the friends feed him the stew, uqincas take him on board Cap’n Manuel’s boat for a fishing excursion. Suddenly a storm tosses the boat, and they rush for shore, but Quincas’s body is tossed overboard. It is a fitting end for Quincas, who loved the sea and once made a “solemn oath” that it “would be the only witness to his final hour.
