Synopsis:

This book is a documentary political novel, a decadent and superficial pop story, a mutilated memoir about migration, war, heartbreak and childhood, all at the same time. It is a pastiche of texts that juxtaposes tragedy and humor, commitment and disillusionment, idealism and cynicism.

Little Bastard is a story that grows exponentially from its main characters, Charly and Sybila, to include stories of numerous and seemingly inconsequential secondary characters, including: Pujarraco, a street urchin who will become the leader of a gang; the police officer in charge of cracking down on the teachers’ strikes; a young woman whose father has always shunned her for being a “bastard”; and a child-abusing priest who gets what he deserves.
