Book Launch: A Night Guide through the City-In-The-Sun by Tony Mochama aka Smitta, Mar. 5 2014 @ Arfa Lounge
Have you heard of the legendary Nairobi Night Runner? No?! Then the next publication in the Contact Zones NRB book series and the second issue of its Rogue Series shall hit the spot.
Tony Mochama’s Nairobi – A Night Guide through the City-in-the-Sun reveals the vibrant, eccentric and extreme city of Nairobi that is made up of different and contradictory worlds.
Nairobi is also an elusive city; difficult to comprehend and fully penetrate. What better guide can there be than Tony Mochama, the notorious and popular chronicler of Nairobi’s urban life? Haunted by his doppelganger the Night Runner – a naked, mad and mythical being who, in popular rural Kenyan imagination, runs from house to house casting spells – Mochama will carry you along on his journeys through Nairobi.
His is a declaration of love for the city-in-the-sun, after the sun has gone down.
