Fishing at the forbidden local river they cross paths with a madman, Abulu the Prophet who foretells the violent death of the eldest brother. Ben, the fourth brother narrates the story as a child and an adult. This 2015 Man Booker prize contender is essentially a story of family daily life, set firmly in the social and political reality of Nigeria. Ben’s child-like narrative contributes a feeling of dread as the story develops. A simple prophecy destroys a family. Tragic and hear t-wrenching but also a novel with a lot of brotherly love and healing. Borrow the e-book now
