Description
The winner of the 1998 Whitbread First Novel Award and the Somerset Maugham Award, Giles Foden's "genuinely beautiful and disturbing" (Village Voice) novel is the fictional memoir of Scottish doctor Nicholas Garrigan, who arrives in Uganda and is immediately called to the scene of an accident—Idi Amin has run over a cow with his red Maserati. The dictator, obsessed with all things Scottish, appoints Garrigan as his personal physician, and the doctor soon begins his own gradual slide into corruption. Foden's Amin is as ridiculous as he is abhorrent—a grown man who must be burped like an infant, a self-proclaimed cannibalist who would be responsible for 300,000 deaths—and his brilliant novel is both comic and profound. The cover of this edition features Forest Whitaker, who won an Oscar and numerous other awards for his portrayal of Amin in the 2006 film based on the book.
