Bukuru, the “madman,” and Femi, the journalist, are both memorable characters in Arrows of Rain by Okey Ndibe.
In this novel, a prostitute has washed ashore, and the only person who can provide information about what happened is a man who everyone believes is mad.
The story that unfolds merges the fictional history of Madia, a country that is reminiscent of Nigeria, with the biographical anecdotes of the madman.
