it was amazing
Read from January 17 to 23, 2011

Wonderful and amazing. I picked this up because it was nominated for the Booker Prize, which I usually love. IMO, this should have been the winner. Heliopolis tells the story of a young man growing up in Sao Paulo, and his accidental discovery of his true origins and birth. Scudamore romanticizes the ghetto and the pokes fun at the rich. Excellent read.
