This short stories collection is a hilarious look at life as a middle aged Kenyan trying very hard to balance life. You will laugh out loud because you can relate to the That Ka Age stories that cut across ages 20- 60, because in the end, we are all just trying to make sense of this life. Some stories like December Holidays, Joy Bringers and The Cattle Dip Tour poke fun at family relations, how we sometimes put up a show for each other but not fooling anyone. These stories started as weekly WhatsApp status updates that have now gained more than 100 weekly readers. "Your stories are very vividly relatable with a wrought sense of humour especially the native expressions..and the simplicity in storytelling..." Steve, Steve' Cabin- Nanyuki. Your stories are honest, vivid and unapologetically Kenyan, but with the elegance and poise of Austen.- Kennie, Mstadi.com.
