In this collection of essays on African and Caribbean literature, culture, and politics, Ngugi wa Thiong’o delivers a groundbreaking critique of colonialism and capitalism in postcolonial Africa.

In these essays, Ngugi wa Thiong’o eloquently interweaves a range of issues including religious oppression, consumerism, and independence with the powerful intellect and passion that has come to characterise his writing. These pieces are essential for readers wishing to uncover a critical perspective on African society and culture.

Homecoming is a groundbreaking collection intended to provoke and encourage thoughtful debate on how best to ‘restore the creative glory of Africa and of all Africans’ in the wake of postcolonialism.
