Many in One and Other Stories is a collection of stories by budding Kenyan writers with varied, yet interesting, approaches
to storytelling. The anthology is a welcome break from the monotony of classical Kenyan writers that captures emerging
voices on the Kenyan literary scene. This meticulously selected compilation focuses on diverse subjects such as post-election violence, political animosity, national integration, greed, broken love and cultural alienation. This mix makes for interesting reading, even as it raises serious questions about Kenyan society. Set in contemporary African settings with vivid characters, the stories seek to entertain, challenge, inform and provoke the reader. – Andrew Nyongesa.
With precision of eye and word, the writers in this anthology make lucid their creative territories. Ingenious and original, this anthology of resonant, assured and gratifying stories comes from a true connection with lived places and experiences accruing there-from. All the writers treasure language and deftly use its resources of metaphor, voice and syntax to explore their worlds and offer readers new knowledge about their worlds. I trust that readers will find this anthology a sizzling good yarn bubbling with edutainment. – Prof John Mugubi, School of Creative and Performing Arts, Film and Media Studies, Kenyatta University.
