CHRISTMAS WITHOUT TUSKER When their women close the bars and force them to spend Christmas at home, Kambi men realise they have made a big mistake allowing women to run the traditionally male-controlled bar business. There is anxiety and disaffection, as the townsmen men prepare to confront the unthinkable, a tusker-free Christmas. In this vel Meja Mwangi revives Kambi market's hard men, and their harder women, and the characters that made Baba Pesa such a fun read. Mwangi's keen eye for the drama and humor in everyday life shines through his work.
