Fools Rush In Summary


Fools Rush In by Bill Carter

Some trips are chosen, others choose you. When tragedy strikes Bill Carter's life he finds himself drawn to a war zone. In the modern heart of darkness, the besieged city of Sarajevo, we meet a man rebuilding the ruins of his former self in the most unlikely of places. Carter joins a maverick aid organization, 'The Serious Road Trip', and dodges snipers to deliver food and supplies to those the UN can't reach. He makes friends with the artistic community of Sarajevo and fights alongside them for survival in a place where food and water are scarce, where you meet death every day, but crucially where life, love and laughter ring out all the same. Carter takes his journey one surreal step further and enlists the help of major rock band U2.The ensuing events go no small way to influencing the course of the war and Western awareness of it.

Fools Rush In Reviews


"'This lively book is like Good Morning Vietnam crossed with a Conrad novel'" * The Times *
"'Dante's Inferno for the MTV generation. What a guide Bill Carter turns out to be to the hell of Sarajevo during the Bosnian War. Oddly and inspiringly, he finds some heaven there'" * Bono *
"'Fiercely intelligent...It is a deeply felt emotional reaction to the horror and the humanity that Bill Carter would witness, into ordinary life surviving beneath the gun, told with the passion of one who came to identify himself with the tragedy of Bosnia, not as an observer'" * Observer *
