Beyond all pity by Carolina Maria de Jesus ( Book )
16 editions published between 1962 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A diary of daily life in a favela in Sao Paulo, one of the city's slums where the poor live in shacks. Carolina Maria de Jesus describes the daily routine of her life, her hunt for paper and metal to sell so as to buy food for her family. At night she would write her diary on the scraps of paper she collected. Her diary reflected the experience of millions and exposed the injustice of Brazilian society. Beyond All Pity is the unforgettable expression of an individual speaking against the evils of her society and her endurance and courage under the most extreme suffering is inspirational. Carolina Maria de Jesus's life story has a continuing relevance and inspirational quality that is seen in the recent award-winning Brazilian film 'City of God', which shows how little has changed since the original publication of Beyond All Pity
