Petals of Blood by Ngugi wa'Thiong'o

Petals of Blood - Moses Isegawa, Ngũgĩ wa Thiong’o

I dragged my feet with this book for a long time. The character sketches were phenomenal, but something about the style kept me at a distance and it was a great effort to keep turning pages. Even being laid up during the covid-19 lockdown didn't help. Have to mark as 'abandoned'.
