Bolu Babalola recommends
Open Water (2021)
Caleb Azumah Nelson
"Open Water encapsulates what it means to fall in love, explores what it means to move through the world whilst black, and explores the beautiful melding of the two. I will always remember it, and I will always return to this novel. A stunning piece of art."
A Lot Like Adios (2021)
"A sexy and sweet tale that tells us that home is more than a place, but rather where our heart lives."
Hope and Glory (2022)
"A sweeping, rich tale that explores family, secrets, loss, love and redemption within the context of a tessellation of cultures - written with a beautiful texture, Benson pulls you in to a deftly-woven story with tautly-written sentences, and before you know it you find yourself in too deep to get out, too deep to want to get out, wanting to know more."
You Made a Fool of Death With Your Beauty (2022)
"Emezi is a dream of a writer. My heart soared and shook and panted. A rich, complex, beautiful love story, exquisitely told. Emezi builds worlds and characters that you just want to marinate in."
