Peter Nazareth’s powerful novel set in Africa.

The General Is Up

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The General Is Up is a “novel set in modern Africa” by Peter Nazareth. Its story seems, at first glance, to be a fictionalised version of the expulsion of Asians from Idi Amin‘s Uganda in the 1970s. But its writer sees it as being something more than this. The author was associate professor in Iowa University‘s Department of English and the Afro-American Studies Programme, at the time of writing the novel, published by the Calcutta (Kolkata)-based Writer’s Workshop in 1984. Nazareth is a writer of Goan origin, and the novel is set, in large part, among the expat community of Goans, which has had a large number of out-migrants scattered across the globe, including, in the recent past, in Uganda, East Africa.
