Giles Foden with Allan Little: Band of Brothers

From the author of The Last King of Scotland comes an ambitious new novel, Freight Dogs. Fleeing the war that killed his family, teenage Manu finds himself recruited by mercenaries. The freight dogs are pilots who carry weapons between warring African nations, and when Manu throws himself on their mercy he finds temporary sanctuary. Giles Foden discusses his novel with Allan Little, who reported on the war in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
