Hunter & Gatherer
Hunter and Gatherer is an endearing novel that fictionalises Kenyan politics. With its many deficient tragedies and comedies, Kenyan political reality has often seemed tailor-made for fictionalising. One sees a rich welter of issues and personalities that hover around our present-day national politics. Amid the drumbeats of tumultous election, the tale is emotionally filled with a neat mix of poignant family heartaches... two unshakable brothers competing for power with an enchanting and scheming woman in the mix. Recipes include dark demons that come back to haunt, and a dose of vendetta in a dramtic, vivid urban settings of a shrouded metropolis. Nairobi. This novel will sweep you away until the last page. A tour-de-force from Oba Kunta Octopus.
