Summary
For years, Chris McIvor moved from one demanding and difficult job to another as a country director for 'Save the Children': Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Egypt, and elsewhere. In this latest book, he charts his experiences in Morocco and Haiti, then in the Cuba that marketing passes by and that tourists don't see. In his journeying he has seen the best and worst of people, and the best and worst of aid in the developing world, but in The World is Elsewhere he also questions his own journey, and why he has lived the way he has, always moving, always solitary
