Published to glowing reviews, and winner of the J. Anthony Lukas Work- in-Progress Award, The Big Truck That Went By is an important and timely look at the failure of international aid. Jonathan M. Katz was the only full- time American news correspondent in Haiti on January 12, 2010, when the deadliest earthquake in the history of the Western Hemisphere struck the small island nation. More than half of American adults gave money for Haiti, part of a global response totaling $16.3 billion in pledges. But three years later the effort has foundered. Its most important promisesto rebuild safer cities, alleviate severe poverty, and strengthen Haiti to face future disastersremain unfulfilled. How did so much generosity amount to so little? What went wrong? Katz follows the money to uncover startling truths about how good intentions go wrong, and what can be done to make aid "smarter." Reporting alongside Bill Clinton, Wyclef Jean, Sean Penn, and Haiti's leaders and people, Katz creates a complex, darkly funny, and unexpected portrait of one of the world's most fascinating countries.
