While the mainstream media the protagonists from the periphery are the trafficking and violence, in "Paradise City-there is life in the largest slum of Sao Paulo" are anonymous residents the soul of everyday life, those who weave their stories between the alleys and the lives. In this book, are the small lanes the common scenario to housewives and microentrepreneurs, the architect of PET bottle, and the man that turns junk into art, the community radio announcer and artists divided between art and telemarketing, as well as many other characters found in Paraisópolis not only an address in common but, above all, the paradise of every one of them.
Have you ever thought about a book in which you stop to think about the country we live in (Brazil
)? Yes, in the town of paradise, we stopped and refined in our ideologies, prejudices and power relations.
In the town of paradise, we have a kind of documentary told by Vagner and Bruna (both authors of the work), where they depict what life is like in one of the largest slums of Brazil, Paraisópolis, located in noble area of the city of São Paulo. Common sense Associates this and other slums to crime. But the authors tell in this work, a different way of seeing life in place and showing us that in addition to the crime (which does not exist only in slums) there also exists a population happy, smiling and full of creativity.
Every page that folheamos, we presented the particularities of this community: hairdressers with American names, which splits the stream Antonico slum in half bringing uncertainty and risks of flooding, the poet of the slum and even the architect of PET bottles and the man turns Junk into Arte.Ao throughout the book
have several colorful characters, like Jair , the gas man, that makes us reflect on how migrants of all Brazil in big cities, are the heavy labor, and that through these men and women the cities grow more and more each day, but in general the local population does not treat these people like they should be treated, and they act with total disdain and prejudice (whether it be because of the culture , manner of speaking, color).
It's like I always say, I am Brazilian, but in good, most Brazilians always hunting something to criticize others.
