Review:

"This profoundly gripping, hopeful and crucial testament is a work of the utmost skill, sympathy and moral clarity." (starred review)

Publisher's Weekly, 05/11/2009

Review:

"Deo's hopeful story may be intended as some kind of uplifting continental metaphor, but it's inevitably something else as well: a depressing tale of Africa's chaotic destitution, which grinds on despite heroes and even saints. But despair is far from the point here. Kidder's abiding preoccupation is the everyday heroism of ordinary people, and his latest is rife with such unsung heroes....The decency of some in the face of others' almost unimaginable cruelty adds richness and wonder to what otherwise might have been the amply remarkable story of one person's miraculous survival."

Daniel Akst, Boston Globe, 08/23/2009

In Strength in What Remains, Tracy Kidder gives us the story of one man s inspiring American journey and of the ordinary people who helped him, providing brilliant testament to the power of second chances. Deo arrives in the United States from Burundi in search of a new life. Having survived a civil war and genocide, he lands at JFK airport with two hundred dollars, no English, and no contacts. He ekes out a precarious existence delivering groceries, living in Central Park, and learning English by reading dictionaries in bookstores. Then Deo begins to meet the strangers who will change his life, pointing him eventually in the direction of Columbia University, medical school, and a life devoted to healing. Kidder breaks new ground in telling this unforgettable story as he travels with Deo back over a turbulent life and shows us what it means to be fully human. Bookseller Inventory # ABZ9780812977615
