Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Immensely powerful denunciation of poverty, ignorance, global apathy and media blindness. This epic humanist novel has been compared to Tolstoy's "Anna Karenina" and "Birdsong" by Sebastian Faulks. Translated from the French by Patricia Claxton, Courtmanches's work was a huge bestseller in Canada, where it won the "Prix de Libraires".

Synopsis:

The swimming pool of the Mille-Collines hotel is a magnet for a privileged group of Kigali residents. Among the patrons is the waitress Gentille, a beautiful Hutu often mistaken for a Tutsi, long admired by Valcourt, a Canadian journalist and film-maker.
