Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
One of his early works and it certainly shows. Nevertheless this is still an interesting collection of portraits in to the Indian community in Dar-e-Salaam from the fifties onwards. As we get closer to contemporary times and the characters start seeking lands beyond Tanzania the stories seem to be distinctly tinged with sadness and the usual dilemma faced by a diaspora is felt. The book itself is a collection of short stories, most stories running to only a couple of pages and there's little to connect the plotlines for the most part. Nevertheless still an interesting read.
