    As a child Ludo is plucked out of the shantytown where he was born and transported to a world of languid, cosseted luxury. Now twenty-seven, he works high above the sprawling metropolis of Sao Paulo for a vacuous "communications company". But this is not his world, and this is not a simple rags-to-riches story. From the author of the award-winning "The Amnesia Clinic".
