A young Brazilian doctor finds himself drawn back to his old neighborhood in Esplanada, where he encounters memories of his youth that continue to trouble him as an adult. Narrator Charlie Anson provides the voice for the introspective journey of "Hermano," as the young man is called by his daredevil friends. Anson's variations for the dialogue of the many characters help to differentiate them, which is important in a work that makes frequent segues from past to present and back again. While Anson's narration doesn't fully convey the gravity the author intends during this story's more serious events, it is well paced and easy to listen to.
