Staff Reviews


Masterful storytelling by the Nobel laureate in which he follows “something heroic about the small lives” of three characters in German East Africa (now Tanzania) in the early 1900s.  Restrained, elegant, quiet, and profound prose, exploring the effects of colonialism in all its complexities. A story — and an author — to savor and fall in love with. Gurnah’s previous nine novels are just now being reissued in the United States — I will read them ALL. My highest recommendation!
