Morquee traces Sierra Leone?s turbulent recent history through the eyes of one of the individuals caught up in it. With its patient description of how an innocent young man can become tangled in a web of corruption, deceit and war, Morquee is a microcosm of the post-colonial experience in much of West Africa. Morquee is part of a renaissance in Sierra Leonean story-telling. The Sierra Leonean Writers Series is at the forefront of this movement. With this publication, Karamoh Kabba cements his status as a bright young hope for the Sierra Leonean novel. Home-grown creativity in Sierra Leone is on the rise again.
