Now with a new introduction by Beata Umubyeyi Mairesse.
The the harrowing tale of the Tutsi genocide in Rwanda unfolds, as seen through the eyes of a boy named Deogratias. Stassen's tale takes us back and forth in time, showing only before and after the killings-and inexorably revealing the grip of madness they had on one boy and his country.
Deogratias is difficult, beautiful, honest, and heartbreaking, this is a major work by a masterful artist. And now as a reissue, it's getting a second chance to impact new readers.
