A sequel to the bestselling Son of Woman, written in Mangua’s now familiar engaging, cynical and humorous style. In this novel, the Son of Woman has come out of jail and moved to Mombasa to start afresh. He is a fully fledged thirty-something, and a married grown- up. He is unemployed and operating as a blackmarketeer; but in any case, soon expects to find a job as a Member of Parliament. A satirical and fictional portrayal of the African male living in a world of rapid social change and transition to some kind of modernity.
