Item description for I Swear by Apollo by Margaret A Ogola...
The sequel to The River and the Source, which won the Jomo Kenyatta Prize for Literature, and the Commonwealth Writers' Prize for the Best First Book, Africa Region in 1995. In this novel, Ogola tells of the lives of AIDS' orphans Lisa, Johnny and Alicia, and how they are guided to adulthood by their aunt Wandia, an intellectual and independent woman. The author weaves her narrative around the aspirations of her characters and how they develop to find a place in Luo/Kenyan society. A place they seek at the dawn of the twenty-first century, when Kenya is emerging from decades of corruption and deterioration; and in an environment of contradiction and mixed messages, where values and attitudes are continuously being re- examined.
