(2 customer reviews)

KShs850.00

Okonkwo is the greatest wrestler and warrior alive, and his fame spreads throughout West Africa like a bush-fire in the harmattan. But when he accidentally kills a clansman, things begin to fall apart. Then Okonkwo returns from exile to find missionaries and colonial governors have arrived in the village. With his world thrown radically off-balance he can only hurtle towards tragedy.

First published in 1958, Chinua Achebe’s stark, coolly ironic novel reshaped both African and world literature, and has sold over ten million copies in forty-five languages. This arresting parable of a proud but powerless man witnessing the ruin of his people begins Achebe’s landmark trilogy of works chronicling the fate of one African community, continued in Arrow of God and No Longer at Ease.

‘His courage and generosity are made manifest in the work’ Toni Morrison

‘The writer in whose company the prison walls fell down’ Nelson Mandela

‘A great book, that bespeaks a great, brave, kind, human spirit’ John Updike

With an Introduction by Biyi Bandele

  • The Alchemist By Paulo Coelho

    This story, dazzling in its powerful simplicity and soul-stirring wisdom, is about an Andalusian shepherd boy named Santiago.

    Who travels from his homeland in Spain to the Egyptian desert in search of a treasure buried near the Pyramids.

    Along the way he meets a Gypsy woman, a man who calls himself king, and an alchemist, all of whom point Santiago in the direction of his quest.

    No one knows what the treasure is, or if Santiago will be able to surmount the obstacles in his path.

    But what starts out as a journey to find worldly goods turns into a discovery of the treasure found within.

    Lush, evocative, and deeply humane, the story of Santiago is an eternal testament to the transforming power of our dreams and the importance of listening to our hearts.

  • Dance of the Jakaranda book by Peter Kimani

    Set in the shadow of Kenya’s independence from Great Britain, Dance of the Jakaranda reimagines the special circumstances that brought black, brown and white men together to lay the railroad that heralded the birth of a nation. The novel traces the lives and loves of three men-preacher Richard Turnbull, the colonial administrator Ian McDonald, and Indian technician Babu Salim-whose lives intersect when they are implicated in the controversial birth of a child.

    With its riveting multiracial cast, the novel could well be a story of globalisation. Yet the novel is firmly anchored in the African storytelling tradition.

    Kiyosaki expands on his belief that the school system was created to churn out ‘Es’ / Employees…those “A Students” who read well, memorize well and test well…and not the creative thinkers, visionaries and dreamers -entrepreneurs-in-the-making…those “C Students who grow up to be the innovators and creators of new ideas, businesses, applications and products. The book urges parents not to be obsessed with their kids’ “letter grades” (“good grades” might only mean they or the student themselves were successful in jamming a square peg into a round hole…) and focus, instead, on concepts, ideas, and helping their child find their true genius, their special gift. The path they can pursue with a love and true passion. Robert showcases success stories of “C Students” who grew up to be phenomenal successes – and HIRED those “A Students”(attorneys, accountants, and other school-smart specialists) to work in their businesses…while the more average students, “B Students,” often find themselves in government-type jobs…Not surprisingly, Kiyosaki will coin his own definitions of what “A,” “B,” and “C” stand for as he gives parents and their children bits of wisdom as well as insights and tools for navigating an ever-changing world. ..an Information Age world where the ability to change and adapt, understand relationships, and anticipate the future will shape their lives.

  • When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she knows it isn’t love at first sight. They wouldn’t even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn’t want love, she doesn’t have time for love, so that just leaves the sex. Their arrangement could be surprisingly seamless, as long as Tate can stick to the only two rules Miles has for her.

    Never ask about the past.
    Don’t expect a future.

    They think they can handle it, but realize almost immediately they can’t handle it at all.

    Hearts get infiltrated.
    Promises get broken.
    Rules get shattered.
    Love gets ugly.
