Abstract:

"In thirteen short stories, The Sun on My Head announces the arrival of something rare. Geovani Martins' first book gravitates around the young lives of boys from Rio's favelas who not only have to deal with the anguish and difficulties inherent to their age, but must also struggle with the violence, ubiquitous drug culture and racial oppression involved in growing up on the less favoured side of the 'Broken City'. Shot through with the rhythms and slang of neighbourhood dialect, each story reveals the texture of life in the slums: a group of teenagers going to the beach under heavy military police presence, or children's games sent into a spin by the appearance of a revolver."--Publisher description.
