Read full description of the books Menino de Lugar Nenhum:

Jason Taylor é um garoto inteligente e introspectivo que vive em uma cidadezinha do interior da Inglaterra. Está prestes a fazer treze anos, mas a proximidade do aniversário o apavora. Afinal, "treze parece muito pior que doze".
Nesse elogiado romance de formação, David Mitchell narra um ano na vida de um pré-adolescente às voltas com a impopularidade no colégio e com as brigas cada vez mais freqüentes entre seus pais. O pano de fundo é a vida semi-rural do condado de Worcestershire, os efeitos da Guerra das Malvinas e a recessão do início da era Thatcher. A exemplo de outro famoso adolescente da literatura, Holden Caulfield, Taylor é mordaz, sensível e precoce em suas impressões do mundo. Mas seu universo interior é um segredo que ele esconde dos outros.
David Mitchell buscou simplicidade e sutileza em Menino de lugar nenhum, seu quarto livro, primeiro a ser lançado no Brasil. Mas o leitor logo descobrirá que essa simplicidade é apenas aparente. O discurso de Jason Taylor é de uma autenticidade impressionante, com gírias, hipérboles e metáforas poéticas alternando-se naturalmente. A partir de um conflito reconhecível por todos, a crise da pré-adolescência, Mitchell constrói uma história de notável profundidade e ressonância, numa prosa que combina crueldade, leveza, lirismo e humor.

Read information about the author

Ebook Menino de Lugar Nenhum read Online! David Mitchell was born in Southport, Merseyside, in England, raised in Malvern, Worcestershire, and educated at the University of Kent, studying for a degree in English and American Literature followed by an M.A. in Comparative Literature. He lived for a year in Sicily, then moved to Hiroshima, Japan, where he taught English to technical students for eight years, before returning to England. After another stint in Japan, he currently lives in Ireland with his wife Keiko and their two children. In an essay for Random House, Mitchell wrote: "I knew I wanted to be a writer since I was a kid, but until I came to Japan to live in 1994 I was too easily distracted to do much about it. I would probably have become a writer wherever I lived, but would I have become the same writer if I'd spent the last 6 years in London, or Cape Town, or Moose Jaw, on an oil rig or in the circus? This is my answer to myself." Mitchell's first novel, Ghostwritten (1999), moves around the globe, from Okinawa to Mongolia to pre-Millennial New York City, as nine narrators tell stories that interlock and intersect. The novel won the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize (for best work of British literature written by an author under 35) and was shortlisted for the Guardian First Book Award. His two subsequent novels, number9dream (2001) and Cloud Atlas (2004), were both shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize. In 2003, he was selected as one of Granta’s Best of Young British Novelists. In 2007, Mitchell was listed among Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People in The World. Mitchell's American editor at Random House is novelist David Ebershoff.
