The Chattering Wagtails of Mikuyu Prison (African Writers Series)

Only now, with freedom, can Jack Mapanje speak of his harrowing ordeal in Mikuyu Prison, where ‘desperate voices of fractured souls’ clamour to be heard. In poems of uncommon power and unflinching description Mapanje condemns a brutal regime. Yet in these poems Mapanje also affirms the enduring love of family and friends and the spirit of his fellow detainees. Today, living in England, he celebrates the hope kept alive by those who fight for human rights.
