Death of Vivek Oji
Akwaeke Emezi is one of those writers on the precipice of literary fame; reading their work now feels like the final, intimate concert before they book Madison Square Garden.
Hailed as “a dazzling, devastating story,” by The New York Times Book Review, this moving novel unfurls a life-long saga of one man, Vivek, from childhood to his final moments, as he discovers love, loss, friendship, and what it means to be alive. Fans of A Little Life will enjoy the emotional rawness of this poignant read. - Evelyn Maguire
