A description of Saket Soni, author of "The Great Escape" is as follows: "One of this country’s most remarkable activists is also an extraordinary writer. From the very first moment of this world-spanning story Saket Soni has you in his grip. "The Great Escape" makes you feel astonishment, compassion, anger, and, at the end, something rare these days—hope.” --—Adam Hochschild, New York Times bestselling author of King Leopold’s Ghost and Rebel Cinderella.
Another description: “Saket Soni’s The Great Escape is a revelation: into the underbelly of America’s broken immigration system; into the forces of globalization that move millions of people from the poor to the rich countries without regard for their welfare; into one man's epic struggle to obtain justice for the powerless. The book has the pacing and suspense of the best fiction, but is a true story, told with empathy and humor and wisdom. The Great Escape promises to take its place in the annals of the finest narrative writing about migration.”
