Ngugi wa Thiong`o

A Grain of Wheat

€ 18.95


Barack Obama, via Facebook: `A compelling story of how the transformative events of history weigh on individual lives and relationships.`

The Nobel Prize-nominated Kenyan writer`s best-known novel

Set in the wake of the Mau Mau rebellion and on the cusp of Kenya`s independence from Britain, A Grain of Wheat follows a group of villagers whose lives have been transformed by the 1952-1960 Emergency. At the center of it all is the reticent Mugo, the village`s chosen hero and a man haunted by a terrible secret. As we learn of the villagers` tangled histories in a narrative interwoven with myth and peppered with allusions to real-life leaders, including Jomo Kenyatta, a masterly story unfolds in which compromises are forced, friendships are betrayed, and loves are tested.
