For the first book of 2016 we will be discussing The Fishermen by Chigozie Obioma which was shortlised for the 2015 Man Booker Prize.
The Fishermen is set in a small town in Nigeria in the mid-1990s. Four brothers, the youngest is nine, use their strict father’s absence from home to go fishing in a forbidden river and 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, The Fishermen combines classic African storytelling with contemporary fiction, and illuminates Nigeria in all its historical, political and cultural complexity.
We look forward to seeing you there
It promises to be an insightful discussion.
