"This was our January read on the Fiction Lovers website, and our theme was Canadian authors. I had read the Book of Secrets, which I loved, and so was anxious to pick this one up. The book itself takes place shortly after the separation of India from Pakistan, and covers the fight for Kenyan independance from British rule. The charactors once again were vividly drawn, although for some reason I wasn't as enthusiastic about the story as I was with his Book of Secrets. This was a time period I wasn't very familiar with, although when I talked to my Grandmother, she knew precisely what I was talking about, having had lived in England during that time, and so had heard stories about the atrocities. All in all, this was an interesting book to read.[return][return]From the Publisher:[return]From the PublisherDouble Giller Prize winner M.G. Vassanji
