Childhood of the Dead

Childhood of the Dead

Unknown - 1995
Rate this:
Jose Louzeiro's blunt rendering--a legacy of his years as a journalist--brings to the foreground the repetitive nature of Dito's life and obsessions. Louzeiro's rigorous focus on Dito's point of view alone makes the reader trace the decision-making process that gradually leads to Dito's criminalization. Sympathy for Dito is not asked. This is a story without heroes. Even in Dito's most heroic mode--when he begins to carry the banner of revenge for his friend Pixote's death--Dito does not command praise. His courage is that of the desperate. Capable of bravery and of superhuman efforts, he stands.
