6 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and German and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
die Grube: Am Rande einer afrikanischen Stadt leben die Ausgeschiedenen der Gesellschaft in Hunger und Elend. Protagonisten dieser Parabel gegen den Völkermord sind ein Junge, ein Alter Mann und ein Mädchen. Der Alte Mann, selbst einmal ein angesehener Arzt und Minister, erzählt dem Jungen und dem Mädchen von der Habgier der Big Chiefs, die sich selbst als Götter wähnen. Eindrucksvoll schwingt die Stimme des Alten Mannes über den ekelerregenden Geruch und die stickige Luft der Grube und lässt den alles verzehrenden Hunger spürbar werden. Die Wut des Jungen treibt ihn zum Handeln, nicht die bestandenen Männer, sondern die Jungs ziehen in die Stadt, um sich gegen das Elend aufzulehnen und ihre Rechte einzufordern. Wird am Ende die Hoffnung auf eine neue Regierung, die Korruption und Elend bekämpft, gerechtfertigt sein? Meja Mwangis Roman gleicht einem homerschen Gesang über des Menschen Elend und Würde. Er lässt die Lesenden die jüngste afrikanische Geschichte, die erschreckend wiederholbar ist, hautnah erleben. Ab 15 Jahren, *****, Elisabeth Tschudi-Moser
