"A Grain of Wheat is about Kenya on the verge of independence. Africans and Europeans alike pause, in the lull between the fighting and the new world, to see what they have gained and lost... Mr Ngũgĩ writes well and has a real talent for portraying the African background" Western Mail

Hmm, I really wanted to like this book but I had tremendous trouble concentrating on it and following the story. Maybe I was in the wrong mindset or something.
