Bitita's diary: the childhood memoirs of Carolina Maria de JesusUser Review - Book Verdict
An immediate best seller when it was published in Brazil in 1960, Jesus's Quarto de Despejo, the diary of a woman living in the slums of Sao Paulo, contained unusually vivid descriptions of the lives of the very poor. Its English translation, Child of the Dark (1962), was equally successful, as were translations in several other languages. The success of the book allowed Jesus to move out of the slums and continue writing. Through the efforts of her biographer, Robert M. Levine of the University of Miami (The Life and Death of Carolina Maria de Jesus, Univ. of New Mexico, 1995), some of these writings are finally being translated into English. Bitita's Diary (Jornal de Bitita), the last volume Jesus finished prior to her death in 1977, is a poignant description of her childhood in the Brazilian central interior state of Minas Gerais. It is important for providing a look at Brazil during the 1920s and 1930s through the eyes of an impoverished black child, a view rare in any country at any time. Sometimes simplistic, sometimes profound, this is a valuable volume for any Latin American research collection.--Mark L. Grover, Brigham Young Univ., Provo, UT
Review: Bitita's Diary: The Childhood Memoirs of Carolina Maria de JesusUser Review - Goodreads
Great insight into a life that normally wouldn't be recorded. It's particularly disheartening since it shows how wide-spread these sorts of episodes are. Occasionally repetitive, but still intriguing. (Port 404- Univ Senior)
