A Sunday at the Pool in Kigali

by Gil Courtemanche
£7.99   paperback  Cannongate Books (2004)

A Sunday at the Pool in Kigali by Gil Courtemanche Set during the Rwandan genocide, A Sunday at the Pool in Kigali is an immensely powerful and cathartic denunciation of poverty, ignorance, global apathy and media blindness: as well as a poignant love story and a stirring hymn to humanity.

"Courtemanche's exceptional book reminds us how a novel can involve the reader imaginatively and morally in ways a work of history or journalism never could... You will read many of the pages of this great and complex book in shock and horrow. But you must read it - or allow it to read you."
(Sunday Times)
