This play, which was developed with Kikuyu actors at the Kamiriithu Cultural Centre at Limuru, proved so powerful, especially in the use of song, that it was banned and probably contributed to Ngugi's detention without trial.

The book is very relevant to many post independent African countries. I would recommend it to all people studying literature and all alctivists in their struggle of true freedom in third world nations.

About the author (1982)

Ngugi is world famous for his novels from Weep Not, Child to Matigari and the impact of his plays, especially in Gikuyu, which led to his detention in Kenya. He is now Professor of Comparative Literature and Performance Studies in New York University. This book reflects many of the concerns found in Decolonising the Mind and Moving the Centre.
