Podcast: Andrew Brown Chats to Nancy Richards About His Political Thriller, Devil’s Harvest

Devil's HarvestAndrew Brown spoke to SAfm‘s Nancy Richards about his political thriller, Devil’s Harvest.

Brown’s latest novel spans the globe, from the halls of Bristol University and London’s secretive MI6 building to the dusty streets of Juba and the refugee camps in war-torn South Sudan, and it exposes the dark truths of the international arms trade and the plight of the world’s newest country.

Listen to the podcast of the discussion in which Brown shares why he felt the need to set the book in South Sudan and what led him to capturing this particular story:

I was fascinated by that – the idea that civil war in Africa can be solved by redefining your colonial boundaries seemed to me to be a very good idea and I went a few months after the new country was born with an idea of a story around that and what I found was the same kind of euphoria that we had here in 1994: nation building, unity, a real sense of a country coming to its feet.
