Journal Entry 1 by wingmathgirl40wing from Waterloo, Ontario Canada on Monday, January 10, 2011
This novel, written in 1977, describes the intertwined lives of four characters in Kenya. Written as a series of flashbacks, the novel deals mainly with their disillusionment with life in Kenya after indepedence. The author had, at one time, been imprisoned for the political nature of his writing.

I've not read many Africa authors previously, and this book provided good insight into the culture, politics and history of Kenya.

Oops, wrong address! This was supposed to go to okyrhoe as her choice from the VBB. No worries though, I'll forward it to her.
