Soyinka Releases a New Novel

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 story-teller’s



Chronicles of the Happiest People on Earth, is a great and unputdownable read from start to finish.

Size: 6.1 inches x 9.2 inches (15.5 x 23.5cm)
