When Pius Fernandes, a retired schoolteacher living in modern-day Dar es Salaam, discovers the diary of a British colonial administrator from 1913, he is drawn into a provocative account of East Africa and the liasons, feelings and secrets of its people over the course of a century.
"Vassanji captures a wide and authentic perspective that ranks with V.S. Naipaul and Graham Greene... a chillingly accurate novel."
