Seamlessly combining spiritual writing, reportage, travel narrative, humor, and recent history, bestselling author James Martin recalls his time as a young Jesuit working with the refugees in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya. Drawing on his previous experience in the business world, he imagined that he had much to teach the refugees. But they would end up teaching him much more about life, about survival and faith, and about love and friendship. With stories that are by turns frankly incredible, darkly comic, inspirational, tragic, and always provocative, this compelling work is a wonderfully realized tribute to our shared humanity.
From the Publisher:
An American Jesuit combines spiritual writing, travel narrative, history, and humor to describe his time working with refugees in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya.
Author Bio
Robert Coles
Robert Coles was born in Boston, Massachusetts and has been associated with that city throughout most of his professional life, teaching and doing research at Harvard University Medical School. He received a B.A. from Harvard in 1950, and his M.D. from Columbia University. A psychiatrist by training, he studied under Erik Erikson, and was influenced by his mentor's theories on the developmental stages of children. Most of his work reflects his insights garnered through his daily contact with and observation of children at play and in clinical settings. It also shows a concern for children in society and for society as a whole. He won a Pulitzer Prize for his "Children of Crisis" series of books. A prolific writer, Coles has also authored books on the moral and spiritual lives of children and has an interest in documentary writing--having served as a guiding force to "DoubleTake" magazine. He has cited William Carlos Williams and James Agee as influences.
