What other readers are saying about this title:
Avatar for Savoy Truffle Savoy Truffle said:
Some memoirs read like a novel. This is a novel that reads like a memoir. In the context I found this quite unsettling. Amidst a plethora of fictionalized details, the cruel madness of Idi Amin’s reign is exposed through a tangentally complicit narrator. But to me, so many details seem to dilute the bigger picture: that colonialism and exploitative post-colonial European policies drive the continuing agony of African nations. Mad dictators and persistent ethnic strife are a symptom of that legacy.
