Penguin Australia proudly launches The People Smuggler: The True Story of Ali Al Jenabi, the “Oskar Schindler of Asia” by Robin de Crespigny. An utterly gripping portrait of a man cut loose from the protections of civilisation, attempting to retain his dignity and humanity, while picking a path out of an impossible position.
