Admiring Silence - Gurnah, Abdulrazak

A man escapes from his native Zanzibar to come to England, and builds a new life with an English woman. He tells reassuring stories of post-colonial Africa. But on a return visit to his country his vision is challenged and he comes to understand the transformations that have befallen him.
