About This Month’s Featured Audio

Winner of the PEN/Bellwether Prize for Fiction, this powerful debut novel describes the life of a young Tutsi boy who comes of age during the Rwandan genocide.

“Truly fearless writing . . . culturally rich and completely engrossing.”
      &#151Barbara Kingsolver, founder of the Bellwether Prize, author of
The Poisonwood Bible

“The politics will be familiar to those who have followed Africa’s crises (or seen Hotel Rwanda), but where Benaron shines is in her tender descriptions of Rwandan’s natural beauty and in her creation of Jean Patrick, a hero whose noble innocence and genuine human warmth are impossible not to love.”
      —Kirkus Reviews HC starred review

“Benaron accomplishes the improbable feat of wringing genuine loveliness from unspeakable horror. . . . It is a testament to Benaron’s skill that a novel about genocide . . . conveys so profoundly the joys of family, friendship, and community.”
      —Publishers Weekly HC starred review

“Unflinching and beautifully crafted. . . .   This tale of social justice [is] a memorable read, and those interested in coming-of-age stories set in wartime will want it as well. Highly recommended.”
      —Library Journal HC starred review
