Product description

Review

`A fascinating book ... by an ordinary man, about ordinary people,
the kind of daring it takes to survive, and most of all the courage it
takes to endure' -- Sunday Telegraph

`He recounts the ordeal with a narrative tension worthy of a
superior thriller ... compelling ... harrowing' -- Observer

`Here is a memoir that incontrovertibly matters ... he displays in
this account a candour and clear-sightedness that are remarkable' -- Christopher Hart, Sunday Times

`Part memoir, part polemic, part social history, An Ordinary Man
is a deeply impressive work' -- Scotland on Sunday

`Read this book. It will humble and inspire you' -- Daily Mail

Synopsis

'I still don't understand why those men in the militias didn't just put a bullet in my head and execute every last person in the rooms upstairs but they didn't. I survived to tell the story, along with those I sheltered. There was nothing particularly heroic about it '. Paul Rusesabagina was an ordinary man - a quiet manager of a luxury hotel in Rwanda. But on 6 April 1994 mobs with machetes turned into cold-blooded murderers, and commenced a slaughter of 800,000 civilians in just 100 days. Rusesabagina, with incredible courage, saved the lives of 1,200 people. In this powerfully moving autobiography, Rusesabagina tells his story and explores the complexity of Rwanda's history and the insanity that turned neighbours and friends into killers.
