The City of Joy by Dominique Lapierre( Book )

206 editions published between 1985 and 2013 in 17 languages and held by 3,597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One day in Calcutta a rickshaw puller took internationally bestselling author Dominique Lapierre to one of the poorest and most over-populated areas of this haunting city, where five million people live out their lives on the streets. The district was called Anand Nagar -- the City of Joy -- and being there would change the writer's life forever. At the heart of this extremely poor community, Lapierre found more heroism, more love, more sharing, and ultimately, more happiness than in many a city of the affluent West. Above all, he was overwhelmed to discover that this seemingly inhuman place had the magical power to produce heroes and heroines of all ages and from all walks of life. For Calcutta is the home not only of such saints as Mother Teresa, but also of countless other inspiring people, who are ordinary and completely unknown
