Uplifting. . . . Chronicler of the Winds seems to widen his repertory, switching between the nightmarish, the dream-like and the grittily realistic... Mankell evokes a saintliness among those whose brief lives have been tempered by genocide, exploitation and hardship. The New York Times. Mankell's evocative, quietly powerful novel, first published in 1995, tells the unbearably sad story of 10-year-old Nelio, a mortally wounded street kid in an unnamed African port city. After revolutionary soldiers kill his family and most of the people in his village, Nelio makes his way to the city where he joins a gang of homeless orphans, eventuallyand reluctantlybecoming their leader.
