A Sunday At The Pool In Kigali

by Gil Courtemanche - £9.99  Canongate Books Ltd (2018)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781782118886 | ISBN 10: 1782118888

A modern classic of immense power and and poignancy set amidst the horror of war.
 
In the middle of Kigali is a swimming pool at the Hôtel des Mille-Collines. It is a magnet for a privileged group of residents, a place where middle-class Rwandans drink with melancholy expatriates and prostitutes. But beyond the walls of the hotel exists a chaotic society in which millions live in poverty, surrounded by violence and disease. In this troubled world, Valcourt, a Canadian journalist, falls for Gentille, a beautiful Hutu waitress.
 
A Sunday at the Pool in Kigali is a poignant love story, a stirring hymn to humanity and a modern classic of spellbinding power, confronting the nightmare that ravaged Rwanda in the 1990s.
