João Guimarães Rosa (27 June, 1908 - 19 November, 1967) was a Brazilian novelist, probably the greatest Brazilian novelist born in the 20th century. His best-known work is the novel Grande Sertão: Veredas (translated as The Devil to Pay in the Backlands). Some people consider this to be the Brazilian equivalent of Ulysses.
