War and Love - a really powerful story. com User, 13 years ago. I loved this book. Bill Carter has a gift, the gift of relaying emotion on the one-dimensional page of a book. There is so much wisdom in Fools Rush In, questions were asked that I've thought about and the context of the novel and concept of the novel helped answer these questions. There are some books that will stay with you for the rest of your life, The Alchemist was one of them for me and this book was another. Talking Heads said "once in a lifetime", that line just seems so appropriate here. Do yourself a favor and read this.
Back at the office the day’s events quietly slipped into memory’s mud. There was no time. Only the present and today, while the sun was still up, but now that was already long gone, a distant event. And there, in the main room, sat Vlado, Johnny, Alan, Shibe and his girlfriend Amila, and the Road Trip drivers. Shibe was telling a story. Where were you going? asked someone.

Offering an in-depth personal account of the Bosnian and Herzegovinian war, this autobiography follows the author as he departed for conflict-ridden Eastern Europe in the early 1990s. Demonstrating how the protagonist discovered his own love of humanity, this narrative documents his career as an aid-worker, toiling amidst a motley crew of expatriate punk rockers and thrill junkies who dressed as clowns to deliver food to bombed-out orphanages. Touching on his later role as a dogged emissary, this chronicle also relates how the author convinced the rock group U2 to help bring the siege of Sarajevo to the planet via satellite broadcasts beamed out during their PopMart world tour. A forthright and powerful memoir, this searing reconstruction depicts an innocent city under attack as well as indelible portraits of the people of Sarajevo, who continued to live their lives with hope, humor, and passion. This updated edition also includes an introduction by Charles Bowden, the author of Down by the River.
