Review:

"Unreservedly a masterpiece" ( Scotland on Sunday)

"A huge, comic novel... A shimmering, shifting discourse... mythological but also cheerfully disenchanted; political and playful; cartoonish but also epical... the African novel may well have delivered its greatest masterpiece" (Brian Morton Sunday Herald)

"Epic....daring satire" ( Sunday Times)

"Fantastic" (John Updike)

"Truly exciting... the author is a master of farce" ( Daily Telegraph)

From the Publisher:

A magisterial comic novel that is certain to take its place as a landmark of postcolonial African Literature from the exiled Kenyan novelist, playwright, poet, and literary critic
