SUMMARY : A hilarious spoof on the world of journalism. In a case of mistaken identity, mild-mannered wildlife writer William Boot is sent as foreign correspondent to the fictional East African country of Ishmaelia on the eve of a war. Boot flounders through a sea of wild rumours and a hord e of sleazy reporters desperate for a story--any story ; and then he stumbles on something journalists work for all their lives.
