The Famished RoadBook - 1992
Winner of the 1991 Booker Prize--Britain's most prestigious literary award--and a tour de force by a brilliant young Nigerian writer, The Famished Road takes place in the impoverished ghetto community of an African country. The narrator, a spirit-child with special powers that lead him into mischief, persuades readers to see the world through his revealing eyes.
