A love­-starved sea goddess lands on an island inhabited by eunuchs. A girl from Martinique moonlights as a Grace Jones impersonator. In the short stories of the 2020 AKO Caine Prize­ winning author, offbeat characters find themselves in extraordinary situations that catapult them into life­affirming, life-­changing, or even life­-destroying realms between fantasy and reality, between revenge and forgiveness. »This is writing at its most vital: poignant, performative, and disturbing.« [Financial Times]
In cooperation with ›The AKO Caine Prize for African Writing‹.
