A MemoirBook - 2009
"A remarkable story of a young man's loss of everything he deemed important, and his ultimate discovery that redemption can be taught by society's most dreaded outcasts." --John Grisham
"Hilarious, astonishing, and deeply moving." --John Berendt, author of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil
The emotional, incredible true story of Neil White, a man who discovers the secret to happiness, leading a fulfilling life, and the importance of fatherhood in the most unlikely of places--the last leper colony in the continental United States. In the words of Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Olen Butler (A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain), White is "a splendid writer," and In the Sanctuary of Outcasts "a book that will endure."
