In this moving story that speaks to despair and hope, a man recounts his day at work on a flower farm.
Mwangi Joseph Macharia is the winner of our January 2015 round of the Africa Book Club Short Reads competition. In My Pee Pee Thing, Mwangi recounts the trials and tribulations of a man, who goes through hell as he desperately tries to win back his estranged wife.
Left home along after his mother leaves for the shamba, a young boy finds himself confronting an unexpected intruder. Mwangi’s story, told in his characteristic poetic style, raises important questions even as he narrates this interesting encounter involving a boy, a mentally ill woman, a chicken, and a hawk.
