Product Details

Praise

“Compelling. . . . And Home Was Kariakoo offers an insider’s experience of East Africa, empathetic and informed. . . . Vassanji contemplates in clean, unfussy prose. He probes connections between past and present–and isn’t sentimental about either.” —Maclean’s

“A memoir in the widest sense. There is no straightforward narrative or awakening; instead, the book is composed of memories and tied together with sharp historical perspective. How do the different parts of a person coalesce to create an identity? What does ‘home’ mean and what are our responsibilities to it? . . . Throughout And Home Was Kariakoo, Vassanji succeeds in understanding the tension of a bifurcated life and exposing the weight of belonging carried by immigrants like him. After six novels and a long, successful career, Vassanji’s search from how he went to Nairobi to Toronto has come to a meaningful reckoning.” —The Globe and Mail
