Sold by his father in repayment of a debt, twelve-year-old Yusuf is thrown from his simple rural life into complexities of pre-colonial urban East Africa. Through Yusuf’s eyes, Gurnah depicts communities at war, trading safaris gone awry, and the universal trials of adolescence. The result is what Publishers Weekly calls a “vibrant” and “powerful” work that “evokes the Edenic natural beauty of a continent on the verge of full-scale imperialist takeover.”

The Orchards Book Club meets the 1st Monday of the month. This is a great way to encourage reading and interacting with the group’s chosen books. If you are interested in joining please email Lara at programs@orchardsra.ca
