Second volume of Milton Hatoum's trilogy, which intertwines the period of the Brazilian military dictatorship with the formative years of a group of young people harassed by the coup and dreams of freedom. The literary endeavor O Lugar Mais Sombrio, a trilogy that follows the sentimental, cultural and political formation of the young Martim during the Brazilian military dictatorship, began with the novel A noite da espera (2017), which takes place in the 1960s in the newly built country's capital. In this second volume, the protagonist leaves Brasília and returns to São Paulo, his city, where he enters the USP faculty of architecture and starts to live in a student residence in the Vila Madalena neighborhood — a group that will bring him new experiences and great companions for life.
