Inhaltsangabe: In Ndiritu Wahome?s first published book, he charms, tantalizes and engages his readers with a collection of fairytales for all ages. From a story-telling weaver bird to a chief?s son who finds the real value of life, Wahome leads his readers on a captivating journey that deifies time and reality yet remains relevant. Wahome says his ?objective was to create fantasy stories, which were infused with realism in the hope of letting young children know that even though life is full of hardships, they can overcome and achieve anything they so deemed.? But peel back another layer, and The Sad Artist and Other Fairytales has a strong message that reveals ?bad leadership, appalling politics, sloth and corruption? that Wahome says is too often found in contemporary African governments. ?The Sad Artist is magical realism at its best. Wahome?s fairytales are in the tradition of Salmon Rushdie, Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Ben Okri,? says publisher Catherine Rayburn-Trobaugh. ?Ndiritu captures the innocence of the world through a child?s eyes to make strong statements about the modern condition.? Although the fairytales are set in a mystical version Wahome?s native Kenya, they transcend Africa for a global perspective on the realities of life in the 21st century at the crossroads of old and new. Although Wahome?s fairytales can sometimes be cautionary, he never loses hope for both humanity and its future. His world is one that ?The wicked, who seem to live the good life, in the end, suffer in their demise. The good, even though exposed to a life of poverty, wretchedness, and solitude, end up living happily ever after.?

Über den Autor: Ndiritu Wahome was born on September 14, 1987. He started writing at the age of thirteen. At 19, immediately after high school, he published a volume of poetry: ?The Voice from a Young Man under the Burning African Sun.? As a young writer, he is passionate about the art of writing, and other forms of creative arts. Ndiritu believes that you can become anything you want on earth, as long as you have the will power, determination, and passion to train the mind. When he is neither reading nor writing, he is actively swimming and lazing on the beach gazing at the meandering blue waves of the ocean.
