A good book for a trip to any post-colonial nation. A quick read, and the biting commentary on tourism, corruption, postcolonial relations, charity, politics will inspire thought.

I lost her when it came to how life in a small place comes down to "events." To me, it was a stretch, and I think there may have been some understandable concepts rolled in there but it was so over-intellectualized that her point was lost on me.
