Arrow of God Overview

This novel is set in Africa in the early 1920’s, a time when much of what was once called “The Dark Continent” was colonized and governed by white Europeans. Development of its plot and themes is built around the experiences of Ezeulu, the High Priest of a small community of villages in Nigeria. As the narrative describes his conflicts with rebellious residents of that community, with the white government of the region, , and with members of his extended family, it explores themes related to the connection with spirit, the nature and qualities of male-male relationships, and the power and value of ritual.
