My folks met Ishmael Beah at Hay a couple of weeks ago. On their recommendation, I bought A Long Way Gone - Beah's own story of the descent into hell in Sierra Leone and his time as a child soldier, fed a diet of cocaine mixed with gunpowder. A couple of pages in, and you will be utterly hooked. This is one of the most harrowing and compulsive books you will ever read.
