THE STONE-BREAKERS, set in an imagined contemporary African country is a gripping novel told from a unique second person point-of-view of the uprising of a group of women stone crushers at a gravel pit, who rise up against their corporate bosses to demand higher wages for their labor--a gruelling process of break rocks down to gravel-size bits to be used as road surfacing for the expansion of the country's airport.

What begins as a village protest escalates to a state-wide rebellion that confronts the corrupt leadership and challenges the status quo set by the government and the mining corporations.

First published in 2010, this classic novel of labor resistance, is published for the first time in the English language, will draw comparisons to the works of Chinua Achebe, Ben Okri and Imbolo Mbue.
