About this deal

She fights to find her place; she fights to get her husband back and fights to keep her family together. But once again I guess it was for the fact that the characters are given their time to greive the loss of the familiarity that they had in Uganda which they don’t in this foreign land.

These sensuous details bring to life the hot and spice filled air of Uganda, marking the loss of it when the family exile to Britain, to a cold winter and a British diet.the family moves from Kampala to London and the only differences Jaya notices are the weather and the supermarkets. The African-born son of immigrants from India, Uganda is the only home Pran ( as well as Vijay and Asha) have ever known and this sense of identity and belonging is embedded in the narrative, making the emotional rift of Amin’s declaration even more profound. In conclusion, “Kololo Hill” is a beautifully crafted novel that explores a little-known historical event with sensitivity and compassion.

I don't have a creative writing BA or MA and I didn't start writing my first novel until I was in my late thirties.This makes it a dramatic and gripping experience because just as we become familiar with the daily life of this family they are uprooted and flung into a new life in England. From Instagram: “English is my second language - I was born in London but solely spoke Gujarati until I started school. Until Idi Amin issues a decree expelling the country's Indian minority and giving them 90 days to leave the country. Still, this book gives an excellent account of the challenges facing Indian East African families leaving to go live in the West.
