Great book about the Food-for-Oil UN scandal.
Getting Stoned with Savages by J. Maarten Troost is a truly hilarious and eye-opening piece of travel lit. I recently became a big fan of travel writing; his is great for vacation reading especially—it is often laugh-out-loud hysterical. I recommend reading his first book (The Sex Lives of Cannibals: Adrift in the Equatorial Pacific) before you dive into this second effort. It’s a part of the world that I had not considered much aside from seeing South Pacific at Lincoln Center (go for the lighting, stay for the on-stage plumbing) and now I know all about atolls.
