Product description

Review

`Bussmann proves her skill as a writer in this travelogue that gets off to a hilarious start with the tale of how she ended up in war torn Uganda after acting on a reckless whim. She is irreverent and winningly self-deprecating, especially when writing about her own trials. Comedy and conflict in Africa might sound a tricky marriage, but this is a very amusing page-turner which also portrays an Africa you never read about in the foreign-news pages.' --Time Out , Paperback Pick

`Imagine The Last King of Scotland written by Shazzer from Bridget Jones's Diary, and you'd still only get halfway to appreciating Jane Bussmann's funny, incongruous and artlessly perceptive account of ditching the day job to pursue a chisel-jawed peace negotiator, John Prendergast into the heart of a child-corpse-strewn Ugandan war zone. Such fragile material sounds like an unpromising basis for a humorous memoir. But this is one of the funniest books I've read for a long while, and the "romance" with Prendergast is self-deprecating satire at its finest.'
--Sunday Times

'Wickedly funny chronicle of the author's amorous pursuit of chisel-jawed peace negotiator.'
--Sunday Times

`Marrying vociferous rage with self deprecating humour...this is a marvelously maverick approach to the investigation of war crimes.' --Marie Claire Five Stars

Review
