If you want to enjoy authentic African literature tantalized and massaged with mouth watering humor and satire, which only Kenyans can blend and serve, well, you better get a copy of The Devil’s Favourite Demons.
The Devil’s Favourite Demons traces the highly dramatic life of the author, who is a thread running through the pages of this novel from a boy battling jiggers and malnourishment in the village, to ultimately a young successful City lad. A City lad, who eventually marries his wealthy landlord, runs a thriving conglomerate, while living at the very edge of life, albeit with the fear of one day being killed by big-legged women.
The Devil’s Favourite Demons will take you on a dramatic roller coaster ride of the author from a modern macro-slum village bathing in the midst of Kenya’s Rift Valley region, to a charming Nairobi leafy suburb that oozes with urban suave. Chasing his unquenchable desire to become a corporate honcho, the author gets trapped in the realities of balancing the tough, unforgiving City life with his personal values drilled into him by his Scripture-spitting, devil-nonsense, heaven-bound mother. Eventually he innocently, yet stealthily sells his soul to wickedness, earning the qualifications as one of the devil’s favourite demons.
Through a mixture of mouth-watering, jaw-dropping and mind-boggling suspense, the novel reveals a breathtaking complex nexus of melodrama, sizzling and juicy summation of life in a Kenyan village – while contrasting it with the City life – with characters inartistically caught up in the complicated web of money, power, sex, greed and prestige.
