Sister Among The Ragpickers

Sister Among The Ragpickers

Sister Emmanuelle N.D.S.


Recommendation: Cover blurb

Following a long period teaching in Istanbul, in 1971, Sister Emmanuelle witnessed the impoverished conditions of the rubbish collectors in Cairo, and decided to live among them. She remained there until 1993, and this is her account of her work in this period and the both shocking and wonderful things she witnessed. I read this in a posh hotel in Stockholm, and it made such a contrast with my current surroundings that it felt totally surreal, yet completely authentic. I was, however, moved to tears on three occasions. Recommended.

September 1983.
