Riassunto: In this mesmerizing novel Biyi Bandele recreates the unique atmosphere of a multiracial community in contemporary Britain. The Street is populated with a series of amazing characters -- Mide the bookseller, who moonlights as a stand-up comedian; The Heckler, who wittily taunts the sandwich-board preachers outside the tube station; Haifa Kampana, who is obsessed with the till girl at his local 7-Eleven. At the book's centre is Nehushta and her renewed relationship with her father, Ossie Jones, following his awakening from a fifteen-year coma. Biyi Bandele has created a magical voice, mixing humour, the surreal, passion and wit, to produce one of the most arresting novels in recent years.
L'autore: Biyi Bandele was born in 1967 in Nigeria. He left his parents' house at age fourteen to earn his living doing odd jobs, while also going to school and writing his first novel. From 1987-90 he studied Drama at the University of Ile-Ife, where his play Rain won him a scholarship to stay in London. His first novel, The Man Who Came In From The Back of Beyond, was published in 1991. He published his second novel, The Sympathetic Undertaker and Other Dreams, the same year. His plays have been staged at the Royal Court Theatre and have been performed by the Royal Shakespeare Company.
