"My name is Vikram. I have the distinction of having been numbered one of Africa’s most corrupt men…" Vikram Lall inhabits an 'in-between world': between his ancestral home in India and the Kenya he loves passionately: between his infamous African past and his uncertain future in exile. In this sweeping and sumptuous novel, MG Vassanji weaves a rich tapestry of vivid characters, real and imagined, in a land caught between colonialism and independences, between escape from political terror and a seemly inevitable return to Africa, a return that may cost Vikram Lall dearly.
