Renegade British comedy writer Jane Bussmann (South Park) was suicidal in Hollywood hunting interviews with A-list celebrities. So she fled to Uganda, hunting an interview (or better, a date) with charismatic American peacemaker John Prendergast. Instead, she found herself up against war criminal Joseph Kony and his Lord’s Resistance Army, and somehow also against the international community’s farcical failure to stop him. How her tale manages to be both gut-wrenching AND hilarious must be read to be believed.
“… cannot be recommended too highly; full of foul-mouthed brio, insightful, scathing, savagely funny and ultimately heartbreaking. Buy, beg, steal or borrow this hilarious, angry book …” The Times South Africa.
“Marrying vociferous rage with self deprecating humor, a marvelously maverick approach to the investigation of war crimes.” Marie Claire UK
“Manic energy, demented brilliance and a total disregard for her own safety… Bussmann is not making fun of civil war in Africa, but the self-absorbed developed world that turns a blind eye to it.” Canada Globe & Mail
“Who knew war in Uganda could be hilarious as well as moving?” Nicholas Kristof, NY Times
