'Ignorant' Bono is attacked by travel writer Paul Theroux

Telegraph, May 05, 2013
By: Richard Eden

 

Having ended his entertaining 15-year feud with V S Naipaul at the Telegraph Hay Festival in 2011, Paul Theroux is to open a new one, with the rock singer Bono.

The celebrated travel writer will use his forthcoming book, The Last Train to Zona Verde, to criticise the campaigning U2 star over his views on Africa.

"Paul makes a long, very personal, attack on Bono, among other things, for comparing the anti-apartheid song that includes the line 'Shoot the Boer' to an Irish protest anthem," one of Theroux's friends tells Mandrake. "He thinks Bono is an ignorant, meddlesome fool."
