Global Satire: 'X Out of Wonderland'

A satirical look at globalization in the fashion of Voltaire's Candide, the novel X Out of Wonderland by David Cates is based in part on the author's own travels. In addition to writing, Cates directs Missoula Medical Aid, a health-clinic supply program in Honduras.

He just returned from his latest trip to the country and he's already finished the draft of a new book. William Marcus, of member station KUFM in Missoula, reports.
