About the Author

He is the author of Standard Operating Procedure/The Ballad of Abu Ghraib, A Cold Case, and We Wish To Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed With Our Families, which won numerous honors, including the National Book Critics Circle Award, and was counted by the Guardian among the 100 best nonfiction books of all time.


"[It is the] sobering voice of witness that Gourevitch has vividly captured in his work." --Wole Soyinka, The New York Times Book Review

"[Gourevitch] has the mind of a scholar along with the observative capacity of a good novelist, and he writes like an angel. This volume establishes him as the peer of Michael Herr, Ryszard Kapuscinski, and Tobias Wolff. I think there is no limit to what we may expect from him." --Robert Stone

"A sobering, revealing, and deeply thoughtful chronicle." --The Boston Globe

"The most important book I have read in many years . . . [Gourevitch] examines [the genocidal war in Rwanda] with humility, anger, grief and a remarkable level of both political and moral intelligence." --Susie Linfield, Los Angeles Times

"Shocking and important . . . clear and balanced . . . the voice in this book is meticulous and humane." --Michael Pearson, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"Astonishing . . . [Gourevitch] is masterful at placing the unspeakability of mass murder into actual people's mouths and inhabiting it in actual people's stories." --Mark Gevisser, Newsday

"Unsettlingly beautiful . . . brilliant . . . this is a staggeringly good book . . . [It] should be on bookshelves forever." --Tom Engelhardt, The Philadelphia Inquirer
