Publisher's Summary

Zambawi, a banana republic in sub-Saharan Africa, is on the verge of revolution. President Adini clings to power whilst his soldiers switch sides so often they don't know which uniform to wear. It is here that student teacher Jim Tulloh arrives to indulge in a spot of character building. Then Jim is kidnapped from his bush school by the rebel Black Boot Gang and his fate takes a very unexpected turn...

post-colonial Wodehouse?

I found this literally uncontrollably "laugh out loud funny" in places, but at times it approaches tragedy, too. I downloaded it for a fun and easy listen, which it was, but it is also serious satire -- and unlike me, the author dosn't rely on cliches. Warning: be prepared for post-colonial fart jokes, something I'd never thought could make me laugh.
