The Fishermen (Hardback)

Chigozie Obioma


Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2015, debut author Chigozie Obioma's The Fishermen takes you to a Nigerian small town where four young brothers encounter with a madman threatens the core of their family.

The Cain and Abel-esque story is told from the point of view of Benjamin, the youngest of the four brothers. As their father travels to a distant city for work, Benjamin and his brothers skip school and go fishing. But when they end up at a forbidden river, a madman tells them that one day one of the brothers will kill another...

What follows is an almost mythic event with an impact that is both tragic and redemptive.
