Os Bruzundangas (English: The Bruzundangas) is a short story book written by Brazilian writer Lima Barreto.[1] It was first published in 1922.

The book satirizes the politics of Brazil by telling about the "trip" the author made to the fictional country of "Bruzundanga" (which represents Brazil), a country overrun by corruption, poverty and ignorance.[2]
