The White Pumpkin

By Denis Hills
Grove Press, 1976
344 pp. $10.00

This is the book that launched a letter from the Queen to Idi Amin, and the rescue of its author from a Ugandan firing squad by British Foreign Secretary James Callaghan. The offending reference to Amin as a "village tyrant" has been excised, but what remains is a devastating description of Uganda falling apart.
