Summary: ''''After Life'' is not only deeply moving, but written with profound integrity. It is saturated with compassion and in this lies its intense moral power.''--Anne Michaels, author of ''Fugitive Pieces'' ''A disturbingly powerful journey into the violence of everyday life and the inner world of literature. The enigmatic and courageous characters of ''After Life'' jump off the page and change the ways we think about human agency today.''--Joao Biehl, author of ''Vita: Life in a Zone of ...show more Social Abandonment'' ...show less

Bruna Verissimo, a youth from the hardscrabble streets of Recife, in Northeast Brazil, spoke with the author over the course of many years, reliving her early childhood in a raging and destitute home, ...show more her initiation into the world of prostitution at a time when her contemporaries had barely started school, and her coming of age against all odds. Tobias Hecht had originally intended to write a biography of Verissimo. But with interviews ultimately spanning a decade, he couldn't ignore his sense that much of what he had been told wasn't, strictly speaking, true. In Verissimo's recounting of her life, a sister never born died tragically, while the very same rape that shattered the body and mind of an acquaintance occurred a second time, but with a different victim and several years later. At night, with the anthropologist's tape recorder in hand, she became her own ethnographer, inventing informants, interviewing herself, answering in different voices. With truth impossible to disentangle from invention, Hecht followed the lead of Verissimo, his would-be informant, creating characters, rendering a tale that didn't happen but that might have. A call and response of truth and invention, mental illness and yearning, this book is a tribute to and reinterpretation of the Latin American testimonio genre. 8vo - over 7?" - 9?" tall. ...show less
