Ngugi Wa Thiong'o
Ngugi Wa Thiong'o is one of the most important contemporary world writers--his name has for many become synonymous with cultural controversy and political struggle. Patrick William's lucid analysis offers the most up-to-date study of Ngugi's writing, including his most recent collections of essays. Focusing on important aspects of Ngugi's more obscure works, and drawing on a wide range of relevant theoretical perspectives, this study examines the growing complexity of Ngugi's accounts of the history of colonized and postcolonial Kenya.
