Wizard of the Crow

Ngugi wa Thiong'o

To honour the Ruler’s birthday, the Free Republic of Aburiria set out to build a tower; a modern wonder of the world that will reach the gates of Heaven. But behind this pillar of unity a battle for control of the Aburirian people rages. Among the contenders: the eponymous Wizard, an avatar of folklore and wisdom; the corrupt Christian Ministry; and the nefarious Global Bank.

Informed by traditional African storytelling, Wizard of the Crow is widely considered Ngugi wa Thiong'o's masterpiece.
