Douglas Evan was born in 1980 to rural peasant parents in Western Kenya. Growing up in a typical African rural setting provided him with exciting contrasts when he later moved to Nairobi to complete his basic education. This inspired him to start writing about his earlier experiences. Most of his fictional work is thus based on real life experiences from his childhood.
This is an anthology of three stories based on diverse backgrounds from an African rural setting that presents the intrigues of growing up against emerging developments in social life and technology. Each story has a unique set of characters based on their age, from early childhood to late high school, to highlight their growing up experiences.
