Jive Talker

Notes

In German.

In this often subversive book, Samson Kambalu introduces his country of birth, Malawi, an impoverished nation in which no dissent is tolerated, where political opponents are “disappeared” and where a portrait of Life President Dr. Hastings Kamuzu Banda is always guaranteed to be watching. Narrated with sass and charisma, The Jive Talker is a love letter to an Africa that is hardly understood.
