The City of Joy Book Description

Living in the seeming hell of one of the poorest and most crowded quarters of Calcutta are the saints of today: saints such as Mother Teresa, saints such as Stephen Kovalski, an unkown Polish Catholic priest who made his home there to care for the poorest of the poor. And Max Loeb, an American physician dedicated to fighting disease in this dirty hellhole. City of Joy, the story of these saints, is a testament to the human spirit unbowed by the most wretched of circumstances.

The author Dominique Lappierre, a journalist turned author by this book. For the author, the City of joy is Anand Nagar – an ill famed slum area in Kolkata, India. India is the country of poorest of all, rickshaw pullers, beggars, scrap collecting kids, suffocating sweat-shop workers, slum mafia. refugees from villages, chased away by natural calamities, these people take each day as it comes. they struggle for per day meal in order to survive. The author has interviewed the people and has described their problems and helplessness. This book conveys the message of universal love and hope and also gives the living example of hope and faith. A book definitely worth reading. A appreciating effort by the author to draw our notice towards the poors and poverty.
