The In-Between World of Vikram Lall

by M.G. Vassanji
£7.99   paperback  Cannongate Books (2005)

The In-Between World of Vikram Lall by M.G. Vassanji "My name is Vikram Lall. 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, M.G. Vassanji weaves a rich tapestry of vivid characters, real and imagined, in a land caught between colonialism and independence, between escape from political terror and a seemingly inevitable return to Africa, a return that may cost Vikram Lall dearly...

"This warm-hued, marvellously accomplished novel opens up a world that will be new and unfamiliar to many readers, and one that they will not easily forget."
(Guardian)
