None, however, is as riveting as what master storyteller Ng??g?? wa Thiong'o offers in The Upright Revolution. Blending myth and folklore with an acute insight into the human ...psyche and politics, Wa Thiong'o conjures up a fantastic fable about how and why humans began to walk upright. It is a story that will appeal to children and adults alike, containing a clear and important message: "Life is connected." Originally written in Gikuyu, this short story has been translated into sixty-three languages-forty-seven of them African-making it the most translated story in the history of African literature. This new collector's edition of The Upright Revolution is richly illustrated in full color with Sunandini Banerjee's marvellous digital collages, which open up new vistas of imagination and add unique dimensions to the story.

              Birth of a Dreamer
               

              Birth of a Dreamer (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Thiong'o, Ngugi Wa

              Birth of a Dream Weaver charts the very beginnings of a writers creative output. In this wonderful memoir, Kenyan writer Ngugi wa Thiongo recounts the four years he spent in Makerere University in Kampala, Ugandathreshold years where he found his voice as a playwright, journalist..., and novelist, just as Uganda, Kenya, Congo, and other countries were in the final throes of their independence struggles. James Ngugi, as he was known then, is haunted by the emergency period of the previous decade in Kenya, when his friends and relatives were killed during the Mau Mau Rebellion. He is also haunted by the experience of his childhood in a polygamous family and the brave break his mother made from his fathers home. Accompanied by these ghosts, Ngugi begins to weave stories from the fibers of memory, history, and a shockingly vibrant and turbulent present.
