'The Famished Road' completely and utterly blew me away when I read it (not long after it came out). I confess to not being a particular follower of fantasy-type works but I found that to be a soaring and hugely innovative work, so much so, that I promptly bought about 6 copies and farmed them out to people I thought would agree. And they did. It still has a profound affect upon me whenever something comes in relation to Ghana or even just Africa comes - that notion of lives lived on the cusp of the spirit world. Truly astonishing.

And when I said just know I meant Nigeria.
