wizard of the crow by ngugi book

Wizard of the Crow is a novel written by Ngũgĩ wa Thiong'o and translated from the original Kikuyu into English by the author, his first novel in more than 20 years. Set in the imaginary Free Republic of Aburĩria, autocratically governed by one man, known only as the Ruler, this novel is an absurdist dissection of power.


For Aminatta Forna, writing in The Washington Post, "Wizard of the Crow is first and foremost a great, spellbinding tale, probably the crowning glory of Ngũgĩ's life's work. He has done for East Africa what Ahmadou Kourouma's Waiting for the Wild Beasts to Vote did for West Africa: He has turned the power of storytelling into a weapon against totalitarianism.
