Peter Kimani Dance of the Jakaranda

Thursday 15th March 2018 at 6:30pm

Award-winning Kenyan writer Peter Kimani’s third novel reimagines the rise and fall of colonialism in East Africa by telling the story of the first railroad across the Great Rift Valley. The novel traces the lives of three men: preacher Richard Turnbull, colonial administrator Ian McDonald and Indian technician Babu Salim, whose lives intersect when they are implicated in the controversial birth of a child. Writing in the New York Times, Fiammetta Rocco states, ‘I have never read a novel about [Kenya] that’s so funny, so perceptive, so subversive and so sly.’
