A Grain of Wheat
by Ngugi wa Thiong'o
- 272 PAGES
At the center of this novel all is the reticent Mugo, the village's chosen hero and a man haunted by a terrible secret. As we learn of the villagers' tangled histories in a narrative interwoven with myth and peppered with allusions to real-life leaders, including Jomo Kenyatta, a masterly story unfolds, one in which compromises are forced, friendships are betrayed, and loves are tested.
