“Tracy Kidder shines a penetrating, compassionate light on Deo, a Burundian, whose extraordinary resume includes cow herder, medical student, target in the genocidal horror of the mid-1990s, refugee, homeless Manhattan grocery deliverer, Columbia University student, medical student again, and philanthropist. Kidder's portraits of Deo and the amazing people who helped him are appalling, enlightening, and inspiring.”

“Thank you Tracy Kidder for writing this book. It's an incredible tale of Deo who survived both the Burundi and Rwandan massacres, and then overcame all odds to ultimately attend medical school at Dartmouth. Deo eventually meets Paul Farmer -- the subject of Kidder's Mountains Beyond Mountains -- who supports his dream of building a medical clinic back in Burundi. This wonderfully written book really puts our lives into perspective!”
