Description
Born in a So Paulo shantytown, Ludo is rescued and raised by a plutocrat and finds himself entrenched in the gated, guarded community of the super-rich. By turns darkly humorous and poignant, Scudamore's Booker Prize-nominated novel is a highly original take on the rags-to-riches story.
