"In telling the story of Raisuddin Bhuiyan, an immigrant who
pleaded for clemency for the white racist who tried to kill him,
Anand Giridharadas presents an absorbing, haunting picture of what
has happened to large tranches of the US." -- The Irish Times
"Remarkable... A richly detailed, affecting account... Giridharadas seeks less to uplift than illuminate." -- The New York Times Book Review
"Moving and indelible... manifestly inspirational..." -- Salon
