Stephen Lungu was three when his mother ran away, leaving him and his younger brother and sister in the reluctant care of an aunt. By the age of eleven, Stephen had run away too, preferring life on the streets. As a teenager he was recruited into an urban gang, the Black Shadows, which robbed and mugged with a half-focused dream of revolution. When an evangelist came to town, Stephen was sent to fire bomb the event, but instead he stayed to listen. This powerful, bestselling story has now been revised and updated and is in its fourth printing.
