Nuanced look at the Western need to "give" to those deemed less fortunate than the first world. Worth reading

athompson10 Oct 01, 2014

Through the eyes of a naive American narrator, this book takes a hard look at what Western 'charity' does to African nations, and how the best of intentions can have unintended and disastrous consequences. Some of the flashbacks get a little confusing - the narrator goes back and forth among present day, a month ago, three months ago and twenty years ago. A solid, sad book worth reading.
