Ngugi wa Thiong'o's powerful prison memoir begins half an hour
before his release on 12 December 1978. A year earlier, he recalls,
armed police arrived at his home and took him to Kenya's Kamiti
Maximum Security Prison. There, Ngugi lives in a block alongside
other political prisoners, but he refuses to give in to the
humiliation. He decides to write a novel in secret, on toilet paper
- it is a book that will become his classic, Devil on the Cross.
Wrestling with the Devil is Ngugi's unforgettable account of the
drama and challenges of living under twenty-four-hour surveillance.
He captures not only the pain caused by his isolation from his
family, but also the spirit of defiance and the imaginative
endeavours that allowed him to survive.
