Customer Review

on 28 November 2013
This is a fantastic debut novel, a confident, pathos filled work that sears the mind with sentences of real poetic intensity. Ostensibly a coming of age story set against the background of the Kenyan elections, it explores various dualities, mind/body, ambition/feeling, personal/political, and the meaning of home and of 'cleanliness' in both the physical and moral sense of the word. It loses one star because there are occasions where the prose gets away from itself and becomes a little lit-class self satisfied, but this really is an author to watch. I for one can't wait for his next work.
