After comedy writer Jane Bussmann moves to Hollywood, her day job interviewing A-list celebrities leaves her suicidal. She goes to an African war zone in search of a better life (and an ill-considered romance) but ends up uncovering the most farcical war of the century.

''Who knew war in Uganda could be hilarious as well as moving.''
Nicholas Kristof, columnist for the New York Times

''So funny you almost feel guilty laughing.''

''This book will change your life. Must read at all costs. (Four Stars)''

''One of the funniest books I've read for a long while.''
Sunday Times Pick of the Week

''Most sneakily subversive medium for a heretically important message I've seen. Inappropriately f*cking hilarious and absolutely gut-wrenching. Must-read.''
BOOK South Africa

''Bussmann has invented a new genre--the agony/comedy. And it's very, very funny.''
The Lady

''Marrying vociferous rage with humor. . . a marvelously maverick approach to the investigation of war crimes. (Four Stars)!''
Marie Claire

''Cannot be recommended too highly; full of foul-mouthed vigor, insightful, scathing, savagely funny and ultimately heartbreaking. Buy, beg, steal or borrow this hilarious, angry book--but read it.''
The Times South Africa

''That rarest of things. . . a comedy that is truly funny.''
The Guardian

''Angry and hilarious, this is a little classic.''
Standard Pick of the Year

''Very funny. Jane's got a death wish.''
Matt Stone, South Park
