Ngugi wa Thiong’o’s novel is a satire of the social, political and cultural situation on the African continent as well as its relationship with the West. The despotic ruler of the Free Republic of Aburiria wants his country to gain international prestige by building a modern tower of Babel. Alas, the plans cast Aburiria into chaos. The only hope is the unwillingly, yet notoriously famous “Wizard of the Crow”, a magician, healer and fortune-teller.
