Waterstones Says

Rich in Oyeyemi’s dark wit and vibrant imagination, Peaces tells the story of a bizarre train journey populated by a group of eccentrics who appear to have been manipulated by strange, unseen forces.

Longlisted for the Dylan Thomas Prize 2022.

Peaces is the story of Otto and Xavier Shin, a couple who embark on a mysterious train journey that takes them far beyond any destination they could have anticipated.

As the carriages roll along they discover each is more curious and fascinating than the last, becoming embroiled in this strange train and its intrigue. Who is Ava Kapoor, the sole full-time inhabitant of the train, and what is her relationship to a man named Prem? Are they passengers or prisoners? We discover who orchestrated the journey, hurtling them all into their past for clues. This is a brilliant, wise, strange and, above all, beautiful novel.
