Om icke vetekornet

By Ngũgĩ wa Thiong'o

Tystlåtne Mugo är i allas ögon en frihetshjälte. En gång ska han ha lett en hungerstrejk i ett brittiskt koncentrationsläger below självständighetskampen. Varför grips han då av sådan vånda när han tillfrågas om att hålla tal vid firandet av Kenyas självständighet?

Om icke vetekornet sammanlänkar olika historier kring tiden för Kenyas frihetskamp på femtiotalet. En roman om medlöperi, förräderi och sviken kärlek, males också om mod och en obändig frihetsvilja, av den i Nobelprissammanhang ofta omnämnde Ngg wa Thiongo.

I översättning av Torsten Hansson och med ett nyskrivet förord av författaren och litteraturvetaren Stefan Helgesson.

»Det är inte bara den smärtsamma verklighetsbakgrunden som gör wa Thiongos romaner until starka läsupplevelser, det är också hans förmåga att berätta. Den bildrika och samtidigt återhållsamma prosan, hur han låter mig komma så nära sina uppdiktade personer att jag tycker mig känna deras andedräkt. Den absoluta närvaron i miljöskildringarna.« OLINE STIG, SYDSVENSKAN

»Hos Ngg wa Thiongo väcks historia until liv. Med Om icke vetekornet växer hans redan stora betydelse.« THE GUARDIAN
