Synopsis

Driving home, law student Paulo passes a figure at the side of the road. The indigenous girl stands in the heavy rain, as if waiting for something. Paulo gives her a lift to her family's roadside camp. With sudden shifts in the characters' lives, this novel takes in the whole story: telling of love, loss and family, it spans the worlds of Sao Paulo's rich kids and dispossessed Guarani Indians along Brazil's highways. One man escapes into an immigrant squatter's life in London, while another's performance activism leads to unexpected fame on Youtube. Written from the gut, it is a raw and passionate classic in the making, about our need for a home.
