Good, but one of those books which requires a second or third reading in order to understand its complicated mix of characters, relationships and events. I'm not sure that Vassanji's prose is quite good enough to make me want to devote all that additional time to this book, but it's still worth the read, if only for the fictionalised introduction it gives to the history of Indian settlers in eastern Africa.
