Diamonds for Rice tells the unique true story of a businessman, caught up in an African civil war, who bought his way out with a few bags of rice - traded for priceless diamonds. This gripping memoir covers the carnage in Africa, an amazing escape from the Orly bombing and two bone marrow transplants for Eric.

This is a vivid account of Liberia's shameful past and the brutal civil war where rice was traded for valuable diamonds to pay for the last remaining air tickets. Ex-president Charles Taylor was sentenced to fifty years for war crimes - and is now serving that sentence in the UK. Diamonds for Rice also describes the worldwide search for a bone marrow donor, who came to the rescue twice and saved Eric Evans from certain death. The ground-breaking medical story and the real-life dramas run side by side, involving the reader from the start.

Gripping and honest about the realities about living with blood cancer, Diamonds for Rice will particularly appeal to those who have been affected by it, as well as those considering joining the bone marrow donor register. It will also be enjoyed by those interested in history and memoirs. Anthony Nolan and DKMS, both global organisations, have contributed to Diamonds for Rice.
