The City of Joy by Dominique Lapierre ( Book )
40 editions published between 1985 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 3,019 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

"Is Paris burning?" is the question Hitler asked over and over as the French Second and American Fourth Divisions battered their way into the city. Few moments in history are as stirring as the Allied liberation of Paris. Yet few people are aware of how narrowly-and how miraculously-the city escaped Hitler's secret plan to reduce it to ashes. "Is Paris burning" reconstructs, in meticulous and riveting detail, the network of fateful events ... day by day ... moment by moment ... that saved the City of Light. Best-selling authors and renowned journalists Larry Collins and Dominique Lapierre spent three years researching this stirring book. They drew on French Resistance radio messages, German military records, and secret correspondence between de Gaulle, Churchill, Roosevelt, and Eisenhower. They tracked down and interviewed countless people: soldiers, civilians, Allied generals, and even the Nazi commandant who helped Paris fight for her life
