Review

Praise for Road Trip Rwanda

"Funny and moving, powerful and tragic, Road Trip Rwanda is a stunning read about hope, redemption, and friendship in a country emerging from a national nightmare. Only Will Ferguson could achieve such a delicate and satisfying balance. Brilliant and breathtaking."--Terry Fallis, two-time winner of the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour for the novels The Best Laid Plans and No Relation

“A thoughtful and eloquent examination of the Rwandan genocide‎ and how it has shaped generations at home and abroad. A compelling, lyrical, and thought-provoking read, suffused with just the right amount of wit.”–-Dr. Samantha Nutt, Founder of War Child and bestselling author of Damned Nations: Greed, Guns, Armies, and Aid

Praise for Will Ferguson:

"The funniest writer in Canada."--The National Post 

"Pierre Berton with attitude."--Montreal Gazette 
 
"Ferguson has carved out a big niche as one of our most irreverent, funniest writers."--The Globe and Mail 
 
"Will Ferguson writes like a house on fire."--Vancouver Sun
 
 
"Brilliantly entertaining."--The Times (UK) 
 
"Sometimes touching, sometimes amusing and always true ... as a wordsmith and traveler, Ferguson knows where he is going."--The Boston Globe 
 
"Ferguson possesses a crafty eye for detail, not to mention a highly developed understanding of the essential folly in what passes for everyday life."--Edmonton Journal
