Summary, etc.:
'Prisoners of Geography' meets Bill Bryson in this funny, fascinating, beautifully illustrated - and timely - history of countries that, for myriad and often ludicrous reasons, no longer exist. "Equal parts satire and farce as if written by Monty Python, Defoe skewers everyone and everything in a laugh-out-loud performance" (Publisher's Weekly). Gideon Defoe is the author of 'The Pirates!' book series and wrote the screenplay for the Oscar nominated film 'The Pirates in an Adventure with Scientists'. A Dewey Diva Pick.
