Kill Me Quick is the story of Meja and Maina, two young men
arriving in a big city with the hope of bettering their lives,
confident that their school diplomas will lead to success. They are
unable to compete for jobs in the city and, ultimately, they resort
to petty theft and to being exploited by employers. They end up
in the backstreets, where they thrive among the strays and the
homeless. Brutally separated by circumstances, they turn to crime
and meet behind prison bars.
This young adult novel displays Mwangi’s talent for writing lively
stories depicting rural youth and societal problems in Kenya.
