Wizard of the Crow
A magisterial comic novel that is certain to take its place as a landmark of postcolonial African Literature from the exiled Kenyan novelist, playwright, poet, and literary critic.
Set in the fictional Free Republic of Aburiria, Wizard of the Crow dramatises with searing humour and piercing observation a battle for control of the souls of the Aburirian people. Fashioning the stories of the powerful and the ordinary into a dazzling mosaic, Ngugi wa Thiog'o reveals humanity in all its surprising intricacy.
Informed by richly enigmatic traditional African storytelling, Wizard of the Crow is a masterpiece and a major achievement in Ngugi wa Thiong'o's extraordinary and brave career.
