Meja Mwangi began his prolific writing career in the 1970s,
when he burst onto the scene with the award-winning
Kill Me Quick.
He was hailed in various quarters as a rising star in the East African
literary constellation who was helping to disprove the claims that East
Africa was a literary desert (Taban 1965, Nazareth 1976).  Since then,
Meja Mwangi has gone on to establish himself as one of the most
prolific of Kenyan writers, publishing eleven novels in seventeen years
in addition to short stories, children's books and working with a variety
of projects in film. Mwangi's works have received awards in Kenya and
abroad, they have been translated into six languages, and there are
film versions of two of his novels.
