A great read by Peter Godwin. It talks about his life growing up in Zimbabwe and how corrupt it has become. His parents still live there, but he lives in NYC writing for a few big mazagines/newspapers, and his sister lives in England. It's a very easy read but not really a pick me up if you are looking for a truly happy story. This book, as well as his other book, The Fear, definitely look at the negative things going on in Zimbabwe and how corrupt the government is.
