Dance of the Jakaranda

Set in the shadow of Kenya’s independence from Great Britain, Dance of the Jakaranda reimagines the special circumstances that brought black, brown and white men together to lay the railroad that heralded the birth of a nation. The novel traces the lives and loves of three men-preacher Richard Turnbull, the colonial administrator Ian McDonald, and Indian technician Babu Salim-whose lives intersect when they are implicated in the controversial birth of a child.
With its riveting multiracial cast, the novel could well be a story of globalisation. Yet the novel is firmly anchored in the African storytelling tradition.
