Devil on the Cross (excerpt)

November 18, 2013

“Literature is the honey of a nation’s soul, preserved for her children to taste forever, a little at a time! Gikuyu said that he who has put something aside never goes hungry. Do you think Gikuyu was a fool when he said that? A nation that has cast away its literature is a nation that has sold its soul and has been left a mere shell.” (Devil on the Cross – Ngugi wa Thiong’o)
