Olufemi Terry wins Caine prize for African writing

You can read the entire story online. It’s brutal, harrowing, and absolutely brilliant.

From the Guardian:

A “Homeric” story of life and death in a city rubbish dump has won Sierra Leone’s Olufemi Terry the Caine prize for African writing. Terry’s story, Stickfighting Days, follows a group of boys who sniff glue and fight each other with sticks in a dump.
