In this vivid narrative, Paul Farmer describes the incredible suffering — and resilience — that he encountered in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake. Having worked in the country for nearly 30 years, Farmer skillfully explores the social issues that made Haiti so vulnerable to the quake, the very issues that make it an “unnatural disaster.” Complementing his account are stories from other doctors, volunteers, and earthquake survivors.
