This is one of the most realistic and passionate contemporary novels about the life of young people in today's Africa, written by Malama Katulwende, a young Zambian poet and intellectual. It describes the seeming incompatibility of old African traditions and modern life, depicts the political struggle of Zambia's students, and the hope and despair of the book's main character, his family, lover, and friends. Based on real events, this novel provides an insight into African history, daily life, and culture, at the example of an oppressive society. Imagine Europe's revoltes of 1968 in Austral Africa...
