  • Paola Fornari

    I heard about this book when I read about the author's death: I discovered then that he had been at the same school as my brother, just two years above him. It's a fascinating autobiography of a wild and original childhood and adolescence, which delves deeply into themes so familiar to me: boarding school in Colonial East Africa, Indian Ocean living, with all the exotic glamour of beaches and spear-fishing (how often did I accompany my brother on spearfishing trips in that same Indian Ocean!), s [...]

    'Painted Devils & the Land of Ordinary Men'is a poignant tale from the time of colonial Africa, the time of cruel boarding schools and stern duty when the British Empire was in its final gasp. Tuan Marais is a child of an unusual and wayward mother, who whisks him away to live with her and his stepfather in Zanzibar in 1955. She instills in her son a sense of difference (she decries the ordinary) but gives him little in the way of skills to deal with swimming against the tide. It is interest [...]

    Not what I was expecting, didn't have much of an intriguing storyline - was more an interesting account of growing up in Zanzibar over unstable decolonisation - would have liked more depth.
