Description - The Weekenders by Alex Garland
What would happen if you took some of Britain's best writing talent, put them on a plane and flew them to one of the most extraordinary and inaccessible places on the planet?What would happen if you took Irvine Welsh from the streets of Edinburgh and showed him a remote, dangerous village in Africa?What would happen if you flew Alex Garland into one of the world's most hazardous war zones?And how would Tony Hawks react if you dragged him away from his tennis and asked him to write a song with a Sudanese tribesman?With Victoria Glendinning, Andrew O'Hagan, Giles Foden and WF Deedes, these writers have experienced for themselves one of the most beautiful and yet troubled lands in the world The Sudan.This remarkable collection of short stories and evocative travel writing is their response -as diverse and unpredictable as the country itself.
