The stories in Taker range across Fonseca's career, all exploring the modern landscape of Rio de Janeiro, a city whose vast disparities - in wealth, social standing, and prestige - are untenable. In these, rich and poor live in an uneasy equilibrium, where only overwhelming force can maintain order, and violence and deception are essential tools of survival.
