Acts of Faith By Philip Caputo

Vintage / 674 pages / $15.95

Philip Caputo's propulsive, intricate novel is set in very topical Sudan, where every good intention is perverted in the exigencies of a cruel war, and people inexorably become strangers to themselves. "In Caputo's terrain," we wrote here last year, "faith does not imply beneficence but blindness, most particularly to one's own nature."
