Murdering Romance by Kendi Karimi

A Wakini Kuria Prize & African Writers Awards shortlisted author

Murdering Romance is a story about Mukami who simply wanted to experience an actual authentic moment of genuine love and call it her own. But let the title not lull you into thinking that the book is solely about romance. It is much more. The author first portrays Mukami as this lady who seems to be on a revenge mission disguised as a pursuit of love but as the plot thickens, the storyline evolves into other deeper issues. The book delves deep into several themes including domestic violence, toxic masculinity, femininity, absentee parents and abuse, among others.

Often there is a gulf of difference between fiction and non-fiction but in Murdering Romance, the dissimilarity between the two is too blurred to discern.
