How does life go on in the aftermath of decades of genocide? This remarkably intimate and personal photobook byand writer Eva Smallegange presents an unexpectedly positive view of a new social order in the this small African nation. In many ways, this book defines a new approach to post-conflict reporting. Personal, engaging, real, and forever memorable. Highly recommended.
