Devil on the Cross


This remarkable and symbolic novel centers around Wariinga’s tragedy and uses it to tell a story of contemporary Kenya faced with the “satan of capitalism.” Ngugi has directed his writing even more firmly towards the commitment that he shows in Writers in Politics and Detained: A Writer’s Prison Diary.

The novel was written secretly in prison on the only available material — lavatory paper. It was discovered when almost complete and unexpectedly returned to him on his release.
