    Title: ABYSSINIAN CHRONICLES - 2ND HAND
    Author: ISEGAWA MOSES
    Format: HARD COVER
    Publishing status: SECOND HAND

    A near fine copy, signed and dated by the author (5/03/08 Adelaide), in a near fine dust jacket. First Edition.

    Like Salman Rushdie's Midnight's Children" and Gabriel Garcia Marquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude, Moses Isegawa's Abyssinian Chronicles tells a riveting story of twentieth-century Africa that is passionate in vision and breathtaking in scope.
    At the center of this unforgettable tale is Mugezi, a young man who manages to make it through the hellish reign of Idi Amin and experiences firsthand the most crushing aspects of Ugandan society: he withstands his distant father's oppression and his mother's cruelty in the name of Catholic zeal, endures the ravages of war, rape, poverty, and AIDS, and yet he is able to keep a hopeful and even occasionally amusing outlook on life. Mugezi's hard-won observations form a cri de coeur for a people shaped by untold losses.
