This contemporary African classic tells the story of seven unforgettable Kenyan women as it traces more than sixty years of turbulent national history. Like their country, this group of old women is divided by ethnicity, language, class and religion. But around the charcoal fire at the Refuge, the old-age home they share in Nairobi, they uncover the hidden personal histories that connect them as women: stories of their struggles for self-determination; of conflict, violence, and loss, but also of survival. Wairimu, the oldest resident of the Refuge, remembers the young man she met on a forest path one morning, who opened her eyes to a new world of choices that drove her from her village and an arranged marriage to seek the opportunities of Nairobi. And Rahel, from a family of proud military men and fisherwomen, dreams that her son, an army deserter during the Emergency, will return; she clings to life on the chance that she may see him again. Nekesa attempts to talk a young woman on their street out of prostitution, and in so doing, has to reveal her younger self. The Present Moment brings together many strands of Kenyan life and character in this fierce, poignant and compelling story.
