Hailed as 'the seminal work of African literature', Amos Tutuola's The Palm-Wine Drinkard is the story of an alcoholic and his search for a dead wine tapster...

Journeying through the magical land of the dead, he encounters a number of terrifying beings, including ghosts and demons, along the way... He also finds his own pyromaniac son during his travels.

Originally published in 1952, the book was highly praised by Dylan Thomas and T. S. Eliot and is a clear influence on the likes of Hunter S. Thompson. A book you will never forget.

This book has been hand-picked for the Book People's FaberShop, in partnership with Faber & Faber.
