“Kidder’s prose glides with a figure skater’s ease, but without the glam. His is a seemingly artless art… that conceals itself in sentences that are necessary, economical, and unpretentious.” The Boston Globe
“I couldn’t put Rough Sleepers down. I am left in awe of the human spirit and inspired to do better.” – Abraham Verghese, author of Cutting for Stone
Pulitzer Prize-winner Tracy Kidder stands at the forefront of American letters as a champion of the heroism of everyday life. With a reputation for faultless prose and profound insights, his mesmerizing profiles include Mountains Beyond Mountains, which brought the world’s attention to Dr. Paul Farmer, and the Pulitzer Prize-winner The Soul of a New Machine. In his forthcoming work, Rough Sleepers: Dr. Jim O’Connell’s Urgent Mission to Bring Healing to Homeless People, Kidder continues to amplify the efforts of unique individuals who transcend cynicism and create hope.
