These interviews, edited with the assistance of Lynette Cintron, chart Ngugi's political and literary engagement over the previous forty years. Ngugi is one of Africa's most renowned writers. His work has always been politically engaged, arguing a case for the poor and oppressed, not just in Africa but in the entire Third World. The conversations recorded here reflect his interest in exploring events in Kenya's colonial past that had such a profound impact on his own people, the Kikuyu, and ultimately on his own life.
