A Sunday At The Pool In Kigali, Paperback Book

A Sunday At The Pool In Kigali Paperback

Part of the Canons series


In the middle of Kigali is a swimming pool at the Hotel 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.
