Giracha Kachiloch (Grey Bells) Amharic novel

Shama Books, June 2005

Adam Reta is no stranger to the Ethiopian literary scene. He has produced a number of well-crafted short stories including Mahlet and Izabel that had received wide acclaim by the literary circle. He is probably of limited interest to anyone who hasn’t yet felt the
subtle, precise charm of his short stories but it is considerable appeal for anyone who has.

Giracha Kachiloch (Grey Bells), his first novel, also seems to be a rousing departure from the conventional narrative novels dominating the Ethiopian literary landscape. It is set in pre- and post – revolution Ethiopia of the 1974.
