Underground Man

Again unable to sleep tonight so I am reading more of this Potash kid. 

Potent.

With every new post of his I am reminded of another great writer - recently Updike. Yet, it is distinctively Kenyan, he maintains his integrity through out and it is for this reason that I find these comparisons insufficient in fully describing his work. At a time when "Western" writers sound trite and the talent seems to have been exhausted, I am encouraged by this new perspective. 

It seems that the tropical mouths are to be found in Africa, who would have thought?
