Overview

Writer Biyi Bandele-Thomas, one of Britain's hottest young literary talents, doesn't pull any punches when he writes about the institutionalized brutality of his Nigerian homeland. But when he writes about the "politics of violence" a deft mixture of satire and poetic fantasy gradually introduces the unwary to the full horrors inflicted by the military, the police, and the politicians. Told in a series of flashbacks depicting two brothers' reflections on their lives together, this novel is a tragi comedy-hugely entertaining but ultimately a nightmare.
