Set against a city on the edge of reality, of high towers and seething favelas, of rich enclaves and social stratification. Ludo is a boy taken from the slum of Heliopolis and raised in the gated wealth of Angel Park. Highly credible characters locked in often extreme situations – By turns darkly humorous and poignant, Scudamore’s Booker Prize-nominated novel is a highly original take on the rags-to-riches story.
