The In-Between World of Vikram Lall by M.G. Vassanji

In Between World of Vikram LallCalling himself “quite an ordinary man” even as he tops his country’s List of Shame, Vikram Lall recounts four decades of his “in-between” life in Kenya. A third-generation African of Asian Indian descent, he is not African enough, and certainly not on par with the ruling whites. A horrific childhood tragedy determines the rest of his life, leading him eventually into hiding in faraway Canada.
