      Born in in rural Kenya, Ngũgĩ wa Thiong’o came of age in the shadow of World War II, amidst the terrible bloodshed in the war between the Mau Mau and the British. The son of a man whose four wives bore him more than a score of children, young Ngũgĩ displayed what was then considered a bizarre thirst for learning, yet it was unimaginable that he would grow up to become a world. - In the book The River Between, written by Ngugi wa Thiong’o, the main characters Chege, Waiyaki, Joshua each played an important role during the time when the new religious started to take over the ridges of Makuyu and Kameno. In the beginning of the book, it depicts Waiyaki at a young age with his two friends, Kamau and Kinuthia.

      This remarkable and symbolic novel centers around Wariinga's tragedy and uses it to tell a story of contemporary Kenya faced with the "satan of capitalism." Ngugi has directed his writing even more firmly towards the commitment that he shows in Writers in Politics and Detained: A Writer's Prison Diary. The novel was written secretly in prison on the only available material -- lavatory paper. Page | Decolonising the Mind Ngugi wa Thiong'o from Decolonising the Mind In this essay one of Africa's most distinguished novelists discusses some of the connections between language and culture. III I was born into a large peasant family: father, four wives and about twenty- eight children. Catching Them Young is the tide of a book on.

      Ngugi wa Thiong'o's work, "Quest for Relevance" is an attempt to bring bring prominence to the language of Gikuyu and the culture of the people of Kenya. Ngugi wa Thiong’o’s powerful prison memoir begins half an hour before his release on 12 December A year earlier, he recalls, armed police arrived at his home and took him to Kenya’s Kamiti Maximum Security Prison. There, Ngugi lives in a block alongside other political prisoners, but he refuses to give in to the humiliation.
