9781854250094: Red Lights and Green Lizards: A Cambodian Adventure

When two elderly doctors join Voluntary Service Overseas, they find themselves in unusual circumstances when they arrive in Cambodia. Together these women face not only humid weather, cockroaches, and cultural obstacles, but also something far more challenging: the harsh realities of a country still reeling from the prolonged terrors of Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge. With a generosity of spirit and an unquenchable sense of humor they plunge into the maelstrom of lawlessness where life is cheap, and guns and greed prevail. This third edition contains a postscript considering events since 2003, bringing the reader up to date with the situation in Cambodia as it is today.

About the Author:

Liz Anderson spent two years in Phnom Penh with the nongovernmental organization Voluntary Service Overseas.

Review:

"A thoughtful intelligent and beautifully written work. Once started, I guarantee you will not be able to put it down. It clips along, propelling the reader through laughter and grief into the unimaginable and through disturbing and unfamiliar places. I cannot recommend it strongly enough."  —Don Cormack, author, Killing Fields, Living Fields


"The book gave me an insight into, and passionate interest in, Cambodia. Only someone who has lived in Phnom Penh can write in such depth and with a knowledge and conviction which enthralls and absorbs the reader."  —Katharine, The Duchess of Kent
