Searching for meaning in the heart of darkness, he manages to find lodging in an abandoned tower block and sets out getting supplies to the starved, besieged citizens of Sarajevo. It is there that Carter emerges from his stupor. Inspired by a community of people working to bring relief to the city, he daringly enlists the help of music group U2 and its lead singer, Bono, who set up satellite links on the bands Zooropa tour that allowed ordinary citizens of Sarajevo to speak unedited and live on 90-foot television screens to thousands of concertgoers worldwide.Just as Michael Herrs Vietnam memoir Dispatches captured the horror of war for the 60s generation, Bill Carters Fools Rush In will be the seminal book for this generation on the visceral and transformative impact of war in our time.
