"One of the greatest writers of our time" -- Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie "A tremendous writer... It's hard to doubt the power of the written word when you hear the story of Ngugi wa Thiong'o" * Guardian * "Ngugi is affording us a glimpse into how a prisoner of conscience, by stubbornly reiterating his convictions, keeps faith with the ideals that those in power want him to betray... This thrilling testament to the human spirit had, for me, a fierce resonance... I could not help feeling that his luminous words were meant for those victims and many others being persecuted across the world, a way of urging humanity to never surrender to the demons of fear and silence" -- Ariel Dorfman * New York Times * "One of Kenya's greatest storytellers" * Financial Times * "A visionary writer" * Daily Telegraph *
