Summary
'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. In an ambitious tale of a clan and a nation, Makumbi weaves together the stories of Kintu's descendants as they seek to break from the burden of their shared past and reconcile the inheritance of tradition and the modern world that is their future."--Back cover

Summary
Though Kintu opens with the death of a man in 2004, this sweeping, literary family saga immediately jumps to 1750, when ambitious Kintu Kidda inadvertently kills his adopted son; the boy's father curses Kintu Kidda, a legacy that generations of his family cannot escape. First published in Kenya in 2014, this debut weaves the history of Uganda into the lives of the members of the Kintu clan. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
