Love, Sex and Other Foreign Policy Goals

by Jesse Armstrong

Andrew is the hapless narrator who joins a group of passionate students to help promote peace in war-torn Bosnia. Against the serious backdrop of war, the author creates comedic, laugh-out-loud moments as the gang make the intrepid journey to Bihac to put on a peace play. The passion and optimism of youth is captured brilliantly and makes for an uplifting read.


‘We believe in peace and we have seen on our travels that peace can happen. Even here, even now, communities, Serbs, Croat and Muslim, can still cooperate. Tonight, we perform to the people of this town. And we have reason to believe that our performance here could push things just a little, nudge them perhaps, towards peace.’
