Summary

A New York Times bestseller

A Kirkus Reviews “New and Notable Title”, May 2012

Selected for the June 2012 Indie Next List

A 2012 Booklist Editors’ Choice Selection for Fiction

Former Washington Post columnist Donna Britt's memoir presents an honest and thoughtful look at a life spent giving to others. In 1977, Britt lost one of her brothers in a senseless police shooting. Plagued by her grief, she spent the next three decades putting her own needs aside to care for the men in her life. "[A] gutsy memoir . Britt writes eloquently of a woman's sense of anguish and ambiguity in giving herself so completely."-Publishers Weekly

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

The Lower River is riveting in its storytelling and provocative in its depiction of this African backwater, infusing both with undertones of slavery and cannibalism, savagery, and disease.” New York Times Book Review
“Theroux successfully grafts keen observations about the efficacy of international aid and the nature of nostalgia to a swift-moving narrative through a beautifully described landscape.” Publishers Weekly (starred review) 
“Theroux’s latest can be read as straight-up suspense, but those unafraid of following him into the heart of darkness will be rewarded with much to discuss in this angry, ironic depiction of misguided philanthropy in a country dense with natural resources yet unable to feed its people.”  Library Journal 
“A gripping and vital novel that reads like Conrad or Greene—in short, a classic.” Booklist (starred review)
“Extraordinary…The suspense is enriched by Theroux’s loving attention to local customs and his subversive insights.”  Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
