Freshwater (2018)
Akwaeke Emezi
"What if we were not one person, but three in one body?created by careless gods who forgot to ‘close the gate’? Akwaeke Emezi’s novel, Freshwater, paints a fiercely unique, unforgettable story of identity, mental health and the world beyond ours. This impressive debut is lyrical and well-told."
