This debut novel is a powerful reimagining of a history erased. It is set in Ichulu, an Igbo village where the people’s worship of their gods is absolute. Their adherence to tradition has allowed them to evade the influences of colonialism and globalisation. But the village is reckoning with changes, including a war between gods signalled by Ijeoma, a girl who can fly.Reimagining the nature of tradition and cultural heritage and establishing a folklore of the uncolonised, this is a novel about wrestling with gods, confronting one’s demons and understanding one’s true purpose.
