Reprint. Originally published: 2015.

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 prophecy 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.
