This is a novel about the legacy of colonialism and the dictators and chaos which follow, boy soldiers and street kids in a port city in Africa. It is a novel about storytelling and about how life can be about more than survival. Recommended.

Mankell uses Mozambique as a model for this african country where revolutionaries, bandits and the old colonial guard clash bringing horrible devastation to the villagers and city dwellers who are just trying to live their lives. Nelio is one of the street children but not typical. He is a thinker, and at 12 years old, very old in his thoughts. On his death bed he relates his story and through that story gives a message to the world. A bit of a strange read. Not at all the same style as Mankell uses in his Wallendar books.
