Details about How Beautiful We Were by Imbolo Mbue
How Beautiful We Were – So starts Imbolo Mbue’s amazing second novel, How Beautiful We Were. Set in the anecdotal African town of Kosawa, it recounts the tale of a group living in dread in the midst of ecological debasement fashioned by an American oil organization. Pipeline spills have delivered farmlands fruitless. Youngsters are passing on from drinking poisonous water. Guarantees of tidy up and monetary reparations to the locals are made—and overlooked. The nation’s administration, driven by a shameless tyrant, exists to serve its own advantage. Left with not many decisions, individuals of Kosawa choose to retaliate. Their battle would keep going for quite a long time and come at a lofty cost. Told through the viewpoint of an age of kids and the group of a young lady named Thula who grows up to turn into a progressive, How Beautiful We Were is an unbelievable investigation of what happens when the careless drive for benefit, combined with the apparition of imperialism, faces one local area’s assurance to clutch its tribal land and a young lady’s ability to forfeit everything for her kin’s opportunity.
