FAVOURITE NOVEL WITH EXOTIC BACKGROUND
It's set in Haiti during the time of Papa Doc Duvalier's regime of terror.
It's Graham Greene (most of you'll know I have a slight obsession with his books at the moment).
It starts off like a bad joke and then plunges into a great story about the role(s) that an individual plays in his life and in that of the people around him.
It is a fantastic read and one of these days I'll bring myself to write a proper review about this book.
