Praise

“This strange and powerful work mixes memoir, social history, polemic, and manifesto … A terrifying work of enormous importance that contrasts humanity with bestiality, dignity with depravity.” –Kirkus (Starred Review)


“Fascinating … It is difficult to complete I Refuse to Die without admiring Koigi’s selflessness and courage.” –Washington Post Book World


“Gripping … Despite his personal suffering and Kenya’s struggles through colonial and postcolonial strife, wa Wamwere exhibits resilience and optimism in his inspiring autobiography.” –Booklist


“… a passionate and poignant testimony to the struggle of one man—and by that I also mean one family and one people—to remember and survive the evil lessons of history. But it is also much more than that. Koigi wa Wamwere, in life and print, challenges us to make freedom a word that means something tangible for all.” –Rain Taxi
