The In-Between World Of Vikram Lall Summary


The In-Between World Of Vikram Lall by Moyez Vassanji

So begins Moyez Vassanji's award-winning epic, The In-Between World of Vikram Lall. Sweeping in scope, both historically and geographically, Vassanji weaves a rich tapestry of vivid characters, both real and imagined, in a Kenya poised between colonialism and independence. Vikram Lall, like his adopted country, inhabits an 'in-between world': between the pull of his ancestral home in India and the Kenya he loves passionately; between his tragic past in Africa and an unclear future in Canada; between escape from political terror and a seemingly inevitable return home...a return that may cost him dearly. A master storyteller, Vassanji intertwines the political and the personal - the rise of the Mau Mau in the last days of imperialism looms large over a plot centring on two love stories and a deep friendship. The result is a sumptuous novel that brilliantly explores the tyranny of history and memory, and questions the individual's role and responsibility in lawless times.

The In-Between World Of Vikram Lall Reviews


"A wholly engaging and spirited novel of Africa: warm, shrewdly charming, replete with its own wry and humane wisdom," William Boyd "Belonging in a category with Tolstoy's War and Peace, Vassanji's saga is sweeping in scope... complex, compelling, revelatory and unforgettable" Janette Tumer Hospital, The Globe and Mail (Canada); "This novel is one of the most satisfying you will come across... Both a gripping story and an enduring historical document" National Post (Canada)"
