Long DescriptionThe field of autobiography in independent Kenya has witnessed the publication of a high number of autobiographies by men and, in comparison, very few by women. While there has been an increased interest in autobiographical studies by literary scholars, the voice of the Kenyan female autobiographer has been largely unexplored yet this specialty is crucial to the understanding of autobiographical writing. In this work Jennifer Muchiri examines the body of female autobiographies as it exists in independent Kenya. She focuses on the nature and functions of autobiography as they exhibit themselves in autobiographies by Kenyan women. She discusses how the autobiographical voice analyses personal and social relationships. The female autobiographical voice highlights social concerns from a domestic and personalised perspective and functions as a tool for women?s self-exploration and self-definition. This book analyses works by Charity Waciuma, Wanjiku Kabira, Esther Owuor, Rasna Warah, Wambui Otieno, Muthoni Likimani, and Wangari Maathai. The book is recommended for university professors and students who have an interest in the field of autobiography.

Well heck! We had another upgrade of hardware today and the process simply took far longer than expected. Sorry!

Yes, we added some more new hardware. To insure that nothing got lost we had to perform a full database backup.

This backup required copying over 70gig of data from one machine to another and this required a complete database shutdown.

Now this step took longer than expected but that wasn't all, installing the new hardware took longer than expected.

The good news? We now have new servers for both the web server and the database server PLUS backup equipment for both servers. The old equipment has been recycled into massive file servers and backup servers so we haven't wasted anything.

The hope is that all these upgrades over the past couple weeks will improve over all system performance and reliability. With all the traffic we have been seeing lately, the old database server and web server have been getting pushed to their limits. We now have some breathing room again.

Thanks for your patients.
