I decided on this book knowing that I would be traveling to Uganda in March this year. Moses Isegawa (born 10 August 1963), is a Ugandan author.
His novels set against the political turmoil of Uganda, which he left in 1990 for the Netherlands. He became a naturalized Dutch citizen, only to return to live in Uganda in 2006. His novel, Abyssinian Chronicles, which was first published in Amsterdam in 1998, sold more than 100,000 copies. It was very well reviewed when published in English in the United Kingdom and the US.
