Description

Told from the point of view of nine-year-old Benjamin, the youngest of four brothers, The Fishermen is story of an unforgettable childhood in 1990s Nigeria. When their father has to work away, the brothers take advantage of his extended absence to skip school and go fishing. At the forbidden nearby river they encounter a madman, who predicts that one of the brothers will kill another. What happens next is an almost mythic event whose impact will transcend the lives and imaginations of both its characters and its readers.

Professional reviews

"'It's like being in a Zola or Theodore Dreiser novel. […] The Fishermen is an elegy to lost promise […] and yet it remains hopeful about the redemptive possibilities of a new generation.' GUARDIAN"
