When was the last time a book really made you laugh out loud? In the first paragraph alone? This memoir, written by a British comedy writer, takes turns being incredibly witty about the author’s experiences in the vacant world of Hollywood, then on to her journey to Uganda writing about political corruption. It all happens because she wants to impress a gorgeous ‘serious’ journalist who she keeps trying to meet by attending conferences in remote places. While hilariously trying to see if her hot date will ever pan out, she teaches us a thing or two about the important things in life and a troublesome situation in Africa that doesn’t get enough attention from the media. An absolutely fabulous beach read!
