Waterstones Says

A parade of surreal miniatures glide through this effervescent collection from Okojie, from time travelling tramps to the trials and tribulations of a Grace Jones impersonator.  

Longlisted for the The Jhalak Prize 2020

In this collection of short stories, offbeat characters are caught up in extraordinary situations that test the boundaries of reality . . .

A love-hungry goddess of the sea arrives on an island inhabited by eunuchs.

A girl from Martinique moonlights as a Grace Jones impersonator.

Dimension-hopping monks sworn to silence must face a bloody reckoning.

And a homeless man goes right back, to the very beginning, through a gap in time.

Nudibranch is a dark and seductive foray into the surreal.

'One of the most original and innovative writers to emerge in many a year' - Alex Wheatle MBE

'Unique and imaginative' - Diana Evans, Orange Prize Winner
