In Moses Isegawa s riveting first novel the writing is big but The Story Is Even story is even It is a coming f age chronicle Premium Content Code Card for Leadership of post colonial Ugandan history as told by the narrator who is also comingf age Mugezi Isegawa candidly touches Inhalant, Whippet, and Popper Abuse on many subjects Obote Idi Amin civil wars corruption rapes religion party politics the AIDS epidemic culture tradition morals and community folklore While muchf the novel contains serious subject matter humorous sections are abundant and I found myself laughing Treasure Islands Tax Havens and the Men who Stole the World out loud periodically Earlyn the author spectacularly foreshadows the deaths f two main characters and clear are Drawn Between Dictators between the dictators the era and the culture f the home The text is rnate and difficult at times but it reads like a classic I picked ut this novel since I have traveled to Uganda and after having read it Isegawa is now Civil War Blacksmithing on my listf favorite authors This was billed as the Great Ugandan Novel and reviewers kept comparing Isegawa to Rushdie and Maruez Not so my friends There are enough technical issues with the writing that it took me fifty pages in to really figure ut who was who and another hundred to give a shit at all I mean it may still be the Great Ugandan Novel and it certainly shares the national family epic genre with Rushdie and Maruez but so far it s f a mildly scatological Bildungsroman Still interesting but not what I had hoped for at all Bit Economie : on n'a pas tout essay !
