After decades of jousting with the powers that be and living to tell the tale, Wole Soyinka has returned to his roots: story-telling. And though it's been nearly 40 years after his last work of prose fiction, Wole Soyinka proves with this novel that he has lost none of his story-telling chops!
A narrative tour de force, this novel has got everything - friendship and betrayal; faith and treachery; hope and cynicism, murder, mayhem and no shortage of drama, all set against the backdrop of contemporary Nigeria.
As you would expect from a Soyinka work, it's got plenty of colourful characters, profound insights, witty commentary, and the most elegant language. In Soyinka's expert hands, the apparently disparate strands are woven together with a master storyteller's aplomb. Chronicles of the Happiest people on Earth, is a great and unputdownable read from start to finish.
