Migritude by Shailja Patel (A Must Read)

Migritude Cover

If words turn you on, then Migritude is a book you must read. Now, get your mind off sex, think about words challenging you and doing the Brazilian samba with your mind.

Hypnotic, potent and powerful, Shailja Patel leaves nothing untouched. From the political (Did you know the US and Britain supported Idi Amin to take over the government of Uganda when he did or that the British Government required the Kenya government to take a loan of over $12million to buy back land from the British colonial masters) to migrant experiences to her mother’s personal letters informing her change in Kenya to wars and inequality. You name it, Shailja has it covered. Her narrative is intriguing and she spices it up with humour every now and again. Who would have thought a box of saris could end up giving birth to a book…if you are wondering what the hell I am going on about, get the book and find out for yourself. Migritude is a must read…I recommend it with every bone in my body.
