Chronicler of the Winds by Henning Mankell

Book Description

One night Jose hears gunfire from the deserted theatre next door to his bakery. He races to the theatre's uppermost gallery, and there beneath him on a spotlit stage lies the wounded body of Nelio, a street urchin renowned for living on his wits. Gasping, the wounded boy asks to be taken to the roof to breathe the beautiful air fresh off the Indian Ocean. On that theatre roof, his life ebbing away, Nelio begins to tell Jose his extraordinary story...Henning Mankell's Chronicler of the Winds is a dazzling new venture from the master of crime; a beautifully told fable of the African continent.

Books By Author Henning Mankell

Quicksand by Henning Mankell Quicksand, Paperback (February 2017)

In January 2014 the author was informed that he had cancer. This book is not about death, but about what it means to be human. It is about love and jealousy, courage and fear, about what it is like to live with a fatal illness. It is also about why the cave painters 40,000 years ago chose the very darkest places for their fascinating pictures.
