P.J. O'Rourke travels to hellholes around the globe in Holidays in Hell, looking for trouble, the truth, and a good time. After casually sight-seeing in war-torn Lebanon and being pepper-gassed in Korea, P.J. checks out the night life in communist Poland and spends the Christmas holidays in El Salvador. Taking a long look at Nicaragua, P.J. asks, Is Nicaragua a Bulgaria with marimba bands or just a misunderstood Massachusetts with Cuban military advisors?; has a close encounter with a Philippine army officer he describes as powerful-looking in a short, compressed way, like an attack hamster; and concludes, Some people are worried about the difference between right and wrong. I'm worried about the difference between wrong and fun.
