Crime and Punishment
with Michael Christie,
Chigozie Obioma
and Linden MacIntyre

Hosted by Neil Wilson
"wesome in the true sense of the word: crackling with life, freighted with death, vertiginous both in its style and in the elemental power of its story. Few novels deserve to be called ‘mythic,’ but Chigozie Obioma’s The Fisherman is certainly one of them. A truly magnificent debut.

In his debut novel, If I Fall, If I Die, Michael Christie—winner of the Vancouver Book Award for The Beggar’s Garden—has written a beautifully tender and emotionally resonant story about family and friendship, overcoming our fears, and learning when to protect the ones we love and when to let them fall.

 

With The Fisherman, the Cain and Abel-esque story of an unforgettable childhood in 1990’s Nigeria, Chigozie Obioma emerges as one of the most original new voices of modern African literature, echoing its older generation’s masterful storytelling with a contemporary fearlessness and purpose.

 

Punishment, Scotiabank Giller-winner Linden MacIntyre’s first novel since completing the Long Stretch trilogy, brings us a powerful exploration of justice and vengeance and the peril that ensues when passion replaces reason, in a small town shaken by a tragic death.
