Baba Pesa

Authored by Meja Mwangi
Edition: 2

Baba Pesa is the wealthiest man in Laikipia. He owns all the land for as far as the eye can see and wants more. Money calls him Dad, and he cannot get enough of it. His dropout son, Juda Pesa, a self-proclaimed market philosopher, has elected himself champion of the poor and declared war on his father's greed.

"Mwangi ... weaves a thread of humour through a fabric of tears. ... Striving for the Wind is an instructive exploration of the true nature of the human condition in rural Kenya and a fascinating appreciation of the foibles and vibrancy of the human soul." - The Weekly Review

"... a masterly, artistic representation of the reality, contradictions, aspirations and problems of a post-colonial Kenyan community in Central Kenya." - Sunday Nation
