Now twenty-seven, he works high above the above the sprawling metropolis of São Paulo for a vacuous communications company. But this is not his world, and this is not a simple rags-to-riches story: Ludos destiny moves him around like a chess piece, showing him both extremities of opulent excess and abject poverty, taking him to the brink of madness and brutality.By the author of The Amnesia Clinic and winner of the Somerset Maugham Award.
