And home was Kariakoo a memoir of East Africa
—Vassanji, M. G. author.
Restricted DAISY Zip (CELA)

Part travelogue, part memoir, and part history-rarely-told, a portrait of a constantly evolving land. From a description of Zanzibar and its evolution to a visit to a slave-market town at Lake Tanganyika; from an encounter with a witchdoctor in an old coastal village to memories of his own childhood in the streets of Dar es Salaam and the suburbs of Nairobi, Vassanji combines brilliant prose, thoughtful and candid observation, and a lifetime of revisiting and reassessing the continent that moulded him. 2014.
