The Barefoot Surgeon is the story of a boy who grew up in a remote village in the Himalayas, in the lowest tiers of a rigid caste system. In 1985 Fred and Gabi Hollows met a very young and keen Dr Sanduk Ruit who shared their obsession to prove that eye care is a birth right of everyone.
Thirty-five years later Dr Ruit has turned that vision into a reality. Dr Ruit has now personally restored sight to more than 120,000 people. Many are too poor to travel to a hospital, so Dr Ruit takes his mobile clinic to them. His visit to Australia to launch his book is his way of paying tribute to Fred and Gabi who propelled him to the level he is today: one of the most respected eye-doctors in the world.
The most widely acquired novel of all time prior to publication, The Woman in the Window has been sold in 38 territories around the world, and Fox 2000 are about to cast the movie. What’s behind all the excitement? A gripping psychological thriller about an agoraphobic woman who believes she has witnessed a horrible crime, combined with one of the most appealing and intelligent heroines in recent fiction.
But the author’s own story is equally intriguing. Always fascinated by mystery and suspense fiction, he was working as a senior editor at a top New York Publishing house. He wrote the book under a pseudonym and so begun a massive bidding war. Finn’s story is informed as well by personal experience battling incorrectly diagnosed bipolar disorder for more than fifteen years.
