Brian paused here, but the priest remained silent. So he continued. “You see Father. I turned out a monster, just like my father was. Now, I will die just like he did.”
“The above line perhaps captures the ethos of Kingsley’s tale—one of a vicious cycle; as much of the family that he writes about as of the country in which they live. The words betray the tentativeness of a new writer, but that seeming uncertainty gives this work much of its power—as it tells a story with many contours; leaving you with a range of emotions from grief to love. You leave this book however with faith and with hope—“Hope has set us free”, Iweka says.
It is also the best gift he could have given his reader.”
