King Baabu

King Baabu $15.99

Wole Soyinka - Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature

Published by Methuen

This chronicles the debauched rule of General Basha Bash who takes power in a coup and exchanges his general's uniform for a robe and crown

Weaving together burlesque comedy, theatrical excess and storytelling, it has been hailed as a brilliant paraody of political regimes in Africa and beyond
