The Magic of Saida, by M. G. Vassanji

Monday, April 01, 2013

M. G. Vassanji discusses his new novel, The Magic of Saida. It tells the story of an African/Indian man who returns to the town of his birth in search of the girl he once loved—and the sense of self that has always eluded him. The novel moves between the past and present, and tells a personal story as well as a broad story of political promise and failure in contemporary Africa.
