Nudibranch (Hardback)Irenosen Okojie (author)
- Not available
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.
