Binyavanga Wainaina tumbled through his middle-class Kenyan childhood out of kilter with the world around him. Here he takes us through his chaotic school days, his attempt to study in South Africa, a moving family reunion in Uganda, and his travels around Kenya. The landscape in front of him always claims his main attention, but he also evokes the shifting political scene that unsettles his views on family, tribe, and nationhood.
