About the Author

George Lerner is a producer for CNN and PBS and has traveled throughout Africa and has reported on some of the most landmark moments in African history, including South Sudan's Independence Day, the Democratic Republic of Congo's elections, and an interview with Zimbabwe's President Mugabe, which was nominated for an Emmy. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.


Perceptively, generously, Lerner's exact and exacting first novel reminds us that saving the world must always start at home, around ourown hearths, with our own loved ones. Without that, we are surely lost. With it, we may be saved.--Karen Shepard, author of The Celestials
An amazing and impressive debut. A riveting read from beginning to end and one of those all too infrequent novels that linger in the mind long after they are finished. Very highly recommended for both personal reading lists and community library General Fiction collections.
In this bold and unexpectedly tender novel, George Lerner chronicles both our darkest times and our most hopeful. With the documentary eye of a journalist, he marches us across the unspeakably cruel killing fields of the twentieth century, and with the heart of a novelist, he explores the redemptive power of forgiveness and love.--Gary Schanbacher, author of CROSSING PURGATORY
With a documentarian's depth of field and a novelist's perspicacity, George Lerner expertly and poignantly illuminates the trials of nations and the trails of the heart--and the ways to which they intersect--in this deeply gratifying, deeply resonant novel.--Charles Blackstone, author of VINTAGE ATTRACTION
