He Didn’t Die Easy; The Search for Hope Amid Poverty, War and Genocide

He didn’t Die Easy; The Search for Hope amid Poverty, War and Genocide

Kirkus book review magazine describes the publication He didn’t Die Easy; The Search for Hope Amidst Poverty War and Genocide by Kenyan author Mary Kimani, as a powerful statement about overcoming insurmountable trauma.

“Ms Kimani’s He didn’t Die Easy is an absorbing, aware, and deeply zealous piece of writing that is full of spirit, humanity, emotional force and haunting sorrow,” says the book’s editor Christie Dennis. Kimani’s images and impressions leave the reader haunted, her book offers a firsthand view of the daily battle inside the hearts and minds of many people living with the realities of pain, poverty, and violence.”

Mary, Bravo! I celebrate any African woman that empties herself on paper. But to publish a book, that’s incredible! You truly are an inspiration and I would like to buy a copy. I am in Zambia, kindly advise how I can get hold of it.

Once again, well done!

I have read your work and writing with great interest and was very much impressed. I would like you to write a blurb/review; about 4 lines or more, a comment on my poetry manuscript. I would like you to contact me. I hope we can connect and communicate with each other. I am sending you my email address. I hope you will help me with this as it is my dream for other African writers, poets and anyone working in the creative sphere or realm to realise their dreams of writing coming to life as I have realised mine. I look forward to hearing from you; hopefully with a positive reply that will motivate my creative spirit even more. Warm regards, Abigail George.
