Ugandan author Jennifer Nansubuga Makumbi will discuss and sign Kintu, in conversation with DIESEL bookseller Aaron Bady, who also wrote the introduction. First published in Kenya in 2014 to critical and popular acclaim, Kintu is a modern classic, a multilayered narrative that reimagines the history of Uganda through the cursed bloodline of the Kintu clan. Divided into six sections, the novel begins in 1750, when Kintu Kidda sets out for the capital to pledge allegiance to the new leader of the Buganda Kingdom. Along the way, he unleashes a curse that will plague his family for generations.
