Guilherme Solari is a journalist and writer from Sao Paulo, Brazil. He has written about movies, literature and videogames for some of Brazil’s biggest news sites, like UOL and Folha de S.Paulo.

Claustrophobic dystopia (5 stars)


“There was nothing to do, no place to go, the city pressed in around him and every square foot of it was like this filled with people, children, noise, heat.”


Make Room! Make Room! imagines the 1999 of the “future” – it was written in 1966 – where 35 million people live in New York. The world’s resources are all but exhausted and people live literally on top of e...
