The Palm Wine Drinkard

by Amos Tutuola
£8.99   paperback  Faber & Faber (2014)

The Palm Wine Drinkard by Amos Tutuola This classic novel tells the phantasmagorical story of an alcoholic man and his search for his dead palm-wine tapster. As he travels through the land of the dead, he encounters a host of supernatural and often terrifying beings - among them the complete gentleman who returns his body parts to their owners, the insatiable hungry-creature, and his own pyromaniac son.
 
Mixing Yoruba folktales with what T. S. Eliot described as a 'creepy crawly imagination', The Palm-Wine Drinkard is regarded as the seminal work of African literature.
