Synopsis
When scriptwriter Jane Bussmann (South Park, The Fast Show, Brass Eye and Smack the Pony ) moved to Hollywood, it was supposed to be the start of something better. But a day job interviewing Paris, Britney and Co. left her trapped in the Golden Age of Stupid. Then she saw a photograph of John Prendergast in Vanity Fair . His day job was ending war. He was also extremely attractive. Jane 'may have inferred she was a Foreign Correspondent', because suddenly she found herself on route to Africa on the trail of this modern-day Indiana Jones. There was one problem: when she got to Uganda John had left. Alone in a war-torn country, appalled by 25,000 child abductions, Jane must investigate the war crime of the century - to make John fancy her. Combining a maverick heroine, an idealist hero, comic disasters and moving tragedy, this is brilliant storytelling by a hugely talented writer. 'Jane Bussmann's romantic odyssey from Hollywood to Uganda is the funniest thing we've ever read.' Instyle Hot List 'a marvellously maverick approach to the investigation of war crimes.' Marie Claire Five Stars '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. this is one of the funniest books I've read for a long while' The Sunday Times 'hilarious and heart-wrenching' The Spectator
