The Nicest Man In Brazil
One house pointed out to us stood on a verdant slope opposite a favela. Beautiful, tasteful and gleaming white, I was sure Swiss Stick Insect was going to tell us some murderous tale about its resident, though as it turned out it belongs to the best plastic surgeon in Brazil. His clientele consists of movie stars, models and the usual neurotic crowd; he gives up time to work on the poor for free: children with cleft palates and the like. There really aren’t enough people like him in the world, are there?
