Review:

Sheer perfection: sexy, sensual, spiritual, wise. One of the most dazzling debuts I've ever read. Author: Taiye Selasi Source: Guardian Best Books 2017

'This book lured me in from the first sentence. It shook me to the core. This book forges its own glorious path. Read it now. Give it to everyone you know. Read it again.' Source: Daisy Johnson, author of Man Booker Prize shortlisted Everything Under

Remarkable and daring. Author: Tariro Mzezewa Source: New York Times

I'm urging everyone to read it... an intense reading experience. Source: Sophie Mackintosh, author of Man Booker Prize longlisted The Water Cure

Wow. The net effect is a feeling of being peeled open, and quickly finding that skinless place to be normal. More than any novel I can remember, it feels utterly present to the place we are in the world. Source: Binyavanga Wainaina, author of One Day I will Write About this Place

The book is so shivery, so electric, that the first coherent thought you can put together as you read is that you're watching a major new talent beginning to carve out a space for herself. Source: Vox

With a plot as alive and urgent as it is relatable, Freshwater is also solidly its own, brims with its unique preoccupations. Never before have I read a novel like it - one that speaks to the unification and separation of bodies and souls, the powers or lack tehreof of gods and humans, and the long and arduous journey to claiming our many selves, or to setting our many selves free.' Source: Chinelo Okparanta, author of Under the Udala Trees

'A striking debut exploring a Nigerian woman who develops separate selves within her. As she moves to university in the US, her multiple identities narrate the novel. We're excited to say the least.' Author: Layla Haidrani Source: Metro

Ada, the heroine of Akwaeke Emezi's unforgettable debut novel, is not the narrator of her own story. Those duties belong to the other "selves" that occupy her body, more in an ancient souls trapped in a human shell kind of way than a Multiple Personality Disorder way, but the outcome is the same. The conflicts inside her head have voices, and they follow her from her childhood in Nigeria to college in America, ensuring that chaos imbues every step in her journey toward self-discovery Author: The 27 Most Anticipated Books of 2018 Source: Esquire

A courageous debut novel by Akwaeke Emezi, one of a new generation of Nigerian novelists who are braving forbidden themes, including homosexuality, drug-taking and mental illness. Source: 1843

Book Description:
