This anthology is a door to the world of Nairobi in the eyes of three budding Kenyan writers. Welcoming you at the entrance is Tom Jalio with a tale that takes off at the heart Kenya's capital city. It is famed as the "city in the sun", but what happens when that sun sets and you find yourself in a dark and lonely side of town? Such is the dilemma of a campus student in No Rest for the Wicked.The city is surrounded by estates dominated by the middle class. Clifton Gachagua guides you on a stroll through one such residential area in the footsteps of three schoolboys. Follow the bounds of their curiosity as they come of age and are fascinated by the driver of a hearse in Smoker's Lips.Clifford Oluoch takes you on a ride with members of the working class coming home from another day of labouring in town. It seems a relief to escape the hustle and bustle of the city for the respite of a quiet neighbourhood, but some of the passengers carry a greater madness with them. Find out what kind in Every Dog Has Its Day.
