||Mary Karooro Okurut||A tale of compelling human interest, Mary Karooro Okurut's
The Invisible Weevil is an ingenious translation of history into literary art. It is a fictionalised record of
Uganda's past tragic national experience that spans decades of successive regimes. Political and gender concerns,
which form the centre of the novel, are both humorously and sombrely presented.
Karooro Okurut, Founder Member of FEMRITE and her current President, is a celebrated novelist, playwright and columnist and was voted Uganda's Woman Writer of the Millennium by The New Vision Survey of 1999. She is also the author of The Official Wife, a novel that won The National Book Trust of Uganda Award 2004.
