RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 8676440 LA English T1 Devil on the cross A1 Ngũgĩ wa Thiongʼo,, PB Heinemann PP London YR 1982 SN 0435902008 9780435902001 0435906518 9780435906511 0435908448 9780435908447 0435908456 9780435908454 AB 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 but unexpectedly returned to him on his release. Such was the demand for the original Gikuyu edition that it reprinted on publication.
