Fatboy and the Dancing Ladies

by Michael Holman

Funny, warm, intriguing. While it certainly doesn't flinch from the problems of Africa this is a touching portrait of the lives of some of the ordinary people of Kenya - even the satire, though sharp, is affectionate.

It was the worst day in his young life. He had lost more than his name. He had been deprived of his identity, his very sense of being. He, the former State House senior kitchen toto, Ferdinand Mlambo, had been reduced to a single word, offensive beyond measure.
Fatboy.
