The In-Between World of Vikram Lall by M.G. Vassanji [in AsianWeek]

 

In Between World of Vikram LallCalling himself “quite an ordinary man” even as he tops his country’s List of Shame, Vikram Lall recounts four decades of his “in-between” life in Kenya. A third-generation African of Asian Indian descent, he is not African enough, and certainly not on par with the ruling whites. A horrific childhood tragedy determines the rest of his life, leading him eventually into hiding in faraway Canada.
