Chavales del arroyo, escrita en 1955, es los angeles primera novela de Pasolini y es l. a. mejor puerta de acceso a su obra. Se trata de una extraordinaria crónica de l. a. vida en los suburbios de Roma durante los años que siguieron a l. a. Segunda Guerra Mundial, y es una obra maestra —tanto por sus aspectos etnográficos como por los puramente literarios— que atrapa los angeles atención desde l. a. primera línea. Pasolini va retratando a personas cuyas vidas siguen una lógica periférica, ajena a las ilusiones tanto de las clases altas como del obrerismo tradicional. Además, l. a. potente mirada del que sería después un gran cineasta recorre las casas y las calles de Roma, de manera que l. a. ciudad es otro personaje, y muy importante, del libro.
Por todo esto, Chavales del arroyo es una obra clave de los angeles literatura del siglo xx y en ella se encuentran las mejores aspiraciones del movimiento neorrealista italiano.

««Pasolini me estimula sobre todo como intelectual y como crítico. [...] En sus primeros motion pictures es muy elocuente los angeles notion de que el Tercer Mundo empieza en los suburbios de Roma (presente también en sus novelas). Pasolini ha sido un gran mezclador de tradiciones culturales.»»
Juan José Saer
