    I heard about this book when I read about the author's death I discovered then that he had been at the same school as my brother just two years above him It's a fascinating autobiography of a wild and original childhood and adolescence which delves deeply into themes so familiar to me boarding school in Colonial East Africa Indian Ocean living with all the exotic glamour of beaches and spear fishing how often did I accompany my brother on spearfishing trips in that same Indian Ocean set against the backdrop mostly of Zanzibar in the 50s and 60s It gives a profound insight of life there before and after independence and during the revolutionTuan writes in an original honest style and there are some flashes of sheer lyrical brilliance and wonderfully original imagesGreat pity in my view that as with many self published books it is poorly editedbut that only detracted one star out of five for me because it was so gripping I wish I could have fixed the errors in Swahili and the few stylistic blips for him

    Not what I was expecting didn't have much of an intriguing storyline was an interesting account of growing up in Zanzibar over unstable decolonisation would have liked depth
