"Land of my Fathers is a fine novel with much to say about colonialism and community, the sense of place and the universal need to belong."
“A work rooted in the slave narrative tradition of Alex Haley’s Roots. Not a word more, not a word less. A taut, controlled narrative.”
Land of My Fathers is a novel pulsating with African spiritualism rooted in a belief in the power of ancestral spirits to intervene in the lives of the living that radiates with the narrative hues of Toni Morrison’s ‘Beloved’: former slaves trying to exert their humanity unshackled by the oppression of slavery and the mysterious capacity of the dead to hold sway over the living.
