Note First published in Italian as Lacrime di sale: la mia storia quotidiana di medico di Lampedusa fra dolore e speranza by Mondadori in 2016.
Summary The internationally best-selling personal story of "the doctor on the front lines of the migrant crisis" (CNN). Situated more than one hundred miles off Italys southern coast, the rocky island of Lampedusa has hit world headlines in recent years as the first port of call for hundreds of thousands of African and Middle Eastern refugees fleeing civil war and terrorism and hoping to make a new life in Europe. Dr. Pietro Bartolo, who runs the lone medical clinic on the island, has been caring for many of themboth the living and the deadfor a quarter century. Tears of Salt is Dr. Bartolos moving account of his life and work set against one of the signal crises of our time. With quiet dignity and an unshakable moral center, he tells unforgettable tales of pain and hope, stories of those who didnt make it and those who did. Tears of Salt is a lasting work of literature and an intimate portrait of a remarkable man whose inspiring message rings clear: "We cant and we wont be governed by our fears."
