About this product
- DescriptionLiving in the seeming hell of one of the poorest and most crowded quarters of Calcutta are the saints of today: saints such as Mother Teresa, saints such as Stephen Kovalski, an unkown Polish Catholic priest who made his home there to care for the poorest of the poor. And Max Loeb, an American physician dedicated to fighting disease in this dirty hellhole. City of Joy, the story of these saints, is a testament to the human spirit unbowed by the most wretched of circumstances.
- Author BiographyDominique Lapierre is a French author and humanitarian who is highly active in increasing the quality of life in the slums of Calcutta. Lapierre founded the City of Joy Foundation and the charitable association, Action Aid for Calcutta's Leper Children. In 2008 Lapierre was awarded the Padma Bhushan by the Indian Government, the third highest civilian award in India.
