SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2015 MAN BOOKER PRIZE Shortlisted for the
Guardian First Book Award Winner of the FT/OppenheimerFunds
Emerging Voices Award Longlisted for the Etisalat Prize for
Literature In a small town in western Nigeria, four young brothers
- the youngest is nine, the oldest fifteen - use their strict
father's absence from home to go fishing at a forbidden local
river. They encounter a dangerous local madman who predicts that
the oldest brother will be killed by another. This prophesy breaks
their strong bond and unleashes a tragic chain of events of almost
mythic proportions. Passionate and bold, The Fishermen is a
breathtakingly beautiful novel firmly rooted in the best of African
storytelling. With this powerful debut, Chigozie Obioma emerges as
one of the most original new voices of modern African literature.
