Radio Congo: Signals of Hope from Africa’s Deadliest War
Ben Rawlence sets out to gather the news that never travels far--the news of the uneasy peace being made in the towns of Congo's silent quarter. Rather than taking the direct flight suggested by aid workers and mercenaries, he travels by foot, motorbike, and boat, taking his time to meet the people who are making a new life in one of the world's most dangerous places. He introduces us to a guerrilla turned army officer; Lebanese cousins, young tin traders shipped to Africa by their family; a talk-show host who dispenses counsel and courage in equal measure; and a priest who explains the price of beer and normality.
