By the time I meet him, I am not favourably disposed towards Ben Rawlence. It’s not his fault. Rawlence is researcher for Human Rights Watch – memorably described by a colleague as “our best-looking researcher” – who has written a book on his travels through the Democratic Republic of Congo. The book is called Radio Congo, and it’s very good. In fact, it is exactly the book I wished I had written myself, and as I read it I can’t help but find it fascinating and disheartening in equal part.
