Wonderfully colourful but not quite what it seems
on 2 June 2004
An excellent read but I was disturbed to discover (from The Sunday Telegraph on 31st May 2004) that parts of this are fiction. Notably the trip that the Hurds are meant to have made to Rwanda, which never happened. So I now find myself questioning whether the author has broken my trust in it as work of non-fiction. Sow hat is it? Fiction or non-fiction? Or neithe beast nor fowl?
