h is pa ni c r ev ie w : winter 2014 d an ie l, g. re gi na ld . Machado de Assis: Multiracial Identity and the Brazilian Novelist. University Park, PA: The Pennsylvania State University, 2012. pp. 338. In Stigma: Notes on the Management of Spoiled Identity, the sociologist Erving Goffman (Englewood Cliffs, NJ: Prentice Hall, 1963) discusses the relationship between individuals who possess a social stigma and the ``normals'' (8). Reginald Daniel's new book, Machado de Assis: Multiracial Identity and the Brazilian Novelist, discusses the stigmatized identity of the most celebrated Brazilian novelist as perceived in his literary work. Machado's biography is traced, his work commented on, and we are offered a picture of the Brazilian mulatto writer as a way to understand the inclusion, or lack thereof, of race relations and black identification in his writings. Having written extensively about Brazil's racial relations and about Machado, Daniel is delving into known territory, being more than well qualified to take on the subject. In the introduction, the author comments on the importance of Machado's legacy to the Brazilian literary canon, and on this famous author's ``betrayal'' and his ``racial self-negation'' (1).
