Read in May, 2007

Australian journalist travels to Eritrea during the civil war to write about the insurgents, but discovers he only went to escape the fact that his wife left him for a guy they met at an aboriginal town in the middle of the desert. Thomas Keneally is a great author and manages to walk the line between being an overly-optimistic peace corps type and a cynical journalist who covered violent tragedies in remote lands for a few decades.
