The Famished Road is an original that sets out, not to tell a conventional story, but rather to plan and clarify a whole lifestyle and a whole perspective of Africa, where myths are real, the dead are ever-present and the line among dream and the truth is obscured

Set in an anonymous African villager, Nigerian creator Ben Okris novel The Famished Road (1991) recounts the narrative of Azaro who is a spirit child or abiku, a term used to portray a kid who is bound to die prior to arriving at adolescence.

    I like that it’s written in an engaging, down-to-earth style. Deeply engrossing from start to finish.
