    The Perfect Nine: The Epic of Gikuyu and Mumbi

    £12.00
    Recommended by Nick Barley (Festival Director)

    One of the greatest living African writers, perennial Nobel Literature Prize shortlister Ngugi Wa Thiong’o has created a richly enjoyable romp of a verse novel from the origin story of the Gikuyu people of Kenya.

    The Perfect Nine is an entertaining and fast-moving retelling of the myth that begins with Gikuyu (man) and Mumbi (woman), the archetypal father and mother of dazzlingly beautiful daughters known as the Perfect Nine – even though there are actually ten of them.
