Overview

Ciudad de Dios, una de las favelas más conflictivas de Río de Janeiro, se consolidó, bajo los auspicios del Estado, en los años sesenta. En esa época arrancan las tres historias que componen esta novela, las protagonizadas por Inferninho, Pardalzinho y Zé Miúdo, entonces apenas unos niños.

A lo largo de veinte años, sus vidas desgarradas, inmersas en la violencia cotidiana, marcaron un hito en el mosaico miserable y abigarrado de la favela. Porque en Ciudad de Dios, donde todo se sucede a un ritmo trepidante, se juega al fútbol y a las canicas con una pistola en el bolsillo, y las diversiones infantiles se alternan con la rutina del atraco, el asesinato y la sangrienta guerra entre bandas de traficantes. Lo único que impera es la ley de la supervivencia y de la venganza; el único lenguaje ante el que todos responden, el de las balas.

Como freno a este crudo universo marginal no hay sino una policía corrupta, y como último resquicio para la esperanza, la historia de Busca-Pé, un chico apasionado por la fotografía que, sin caer en la criminalidad, trata de abrirse camino y escapar al cruel destino que le aguarda en Ciudad de Dios.

Meet the Author

Paulo Lins nació en una favela de Río de Janeiro en 1958. En los años ochenta formó parte del grupo Cooperativa de Poetas y en 1986 publicó el libro de poemas titulado Sobre o sol. Se ha dedicado también a la enseñanza, y en la actualidad escribe guiones de largometrajes, dirige películas para la televisión y colabora en diversas revistas y periódicos brasileños.

De 1986 a 1993 trabajó como ayudante de la antropóloga Alba Zaluar -que por entonces investigaba la criminalidad en las favelas brasileñas-, y precisamente de sus entrevistas y pesquisas surgió la idea de escribir una novela basada en cuanto había visto y oído: así se gestó Ciudad de Dios, donde Lins mezcla la ficción con una realidad social desconocida para la mayoría de los lectores. Convertida en una de las obras más vendidas en Brasil en los últimos años, y traducida a numerosos idiomas, Ciudad de Dios ha inspirado la película del mismo título, dirigida por el brasileño Fernando Meirelles, que contó con el asesoramiento del propio Paulo Lins.
