Summary Anthropologist's tape-recorded documentary in which each of five members of a slum-dwelling Mexico City family tells about their lives.
Once or twice in every generation a scientific work appears which has the immediacy and force of great literature. The Children of Sanchez is such a book. It brings us in touch with the lives of its subjects in such a way that the reader is drawn into their world as if he were reading a great novel. This is an intimate account of an actual family from the slums of Mexico City. The story they tell is in their own words. The reader learns not only what it is like to grow up in a one-room home in a slum tenement in the heart of a great modern city, but, insofar as the lives in this book may be generalized, about the culture of poverty throughout the world--the culture shared by 80% of the world's people. The lives of the Sanchez family reveal a world of violence and death, of suffering and brutality, of broken homes and the cruelty of the poor to the poor. But they reveal, too, an intensity of feeling and human warmth, a sense of individuality, a capacity for joy, a hope for a better life, a desire for sympathy and love, a readiness to share the little they possess, and the courage to carry on in the face of great adversity.--From publisher description.
