This mindblowing dystopian short story collection was written in response to the cruel prejudice of the US justice system and explores racism and capitalism in America. The prose is at once surreal, tender, brutal and full of wonder. It’s easy to see why this timely book is making waves. A must read.
As Nana Kwame says himself, ‘I’m interested in the way we dehumanise one another, and in our capacity for good despite the insidious hatred and fear all around us. These stories were tough to write. And yet in that space of difficulty and fear, I find necessity and purpose.’
