Publisher Description:
From the first Black winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature and one of our fiercest political activists--this political novel about the dangers of corruption, greed, and the desire for power is the follow-up to his acclaimed debut novel The Interpreters.

In an unnamed country in Africa, Ofeyi writes propaganda jingles for the National Cocoa Corporation. As a part of his job, he is sent to Aiyeru, a small coastal village whose geographic landscape has largely kept the village insulated from the government and its corruption, to promote the company. Here, Ofeyi witnesses a traditional way of life and values that run counter to their country; this creates an inner shift. In a challenge against the government, Ofeyi soon finds that the revolution may be too difficult to control.

Soyinka infuses mythology and his signature poetic style to create a dazzling novel that while it is political and revolutionary, it also warns about the dangers of losing one's morals in that struggle.
