Out of Stock. Usually despatches within 2 weeks.
DescriptionThe people of Uganda have struggled to bury the worst of their history, but after the violent reign of Idi Amin, reminders were never far from view. A stray clue to the 1972 disappearance of a man named Eliphaz Laki led his son to a shallow grave. From there he found the three executioners, among them Amin's chief of staff. Laki's discovery resulted in a trial that painfully gave voice to a nation's past. At once a mystery, a historical accounting, and a portrait of modern Africa, "The Teeth May Smile but the Heart Does not Forget" is above all an exploration of how - and whether - the past can be laid to rest.
