"The Fishermen" is set in a small town in Nigeria in the mid-1990s. Four brothers use their strict father's absence from home to go fishing in a forbidden river. There, they encounter a dangerous local madman, Abulu, whose mystic prophecy of violence threatens the very core of their close-knit family. Told by shy nine-year-old Benjamin, whose love for animals lends the novel an almost mythic quality, "The Fishermen" combines classic African storytelling with the emotional fearlessness of contemporary fiction, and illuminates Nigeria in all its historical, political and cultural complexity.

Kritikmehr Info ›

"In his exploration of the mysterious and the murderous, of the terrors that can take hold of the human mind, of the colors of life in Africa... and most of all in his ability to create dramatic tension in this most human of African stories, Chigozie Obioma truly is the heir to Chinua Achebe." (The New York Times)

"A confident d‚but novel ... frank and lyrical (New Yorker)

"A startling debut... leaps off the pages." (Mariella Frostrup, BBC Radio 4 Open Book)
