Wizard of the Crow

About Wizard of the Crow

Wizard of the Crow is a bitingly satirical novel about African politics, power and paranoia. It is set in the Free Republic of Aburiria where freedom is rare but spectacle is not.

Epic and ambitious, Wizard of the Crow is Ngugi wa Thiong'O's first novel in 20 years. It aims, in his words, "to sum up Africa of the twentieth century in the context of two thousand years of world history."
