Wat zegt de pers?

‘These stories are an excitement and a wonder: strange, crazed, urgent and funny ... The wildly talented Adjei-Brenyah has made these edgy tales immensely charming, via his resolute, heartful, immensely likeable narrators, capable of seeing the world as blessed and cursed at once.’ - George Saunders

‘This book is dark and captivating and essential. This book is a call to arms and it is a condemnation; Adjei-Brenyah offers powerful prose as parable. The writing in this outstanding collection will make you hurt and demand your hope.’ - Roxane Gay

‘For literature to bring forth such an astonishing new voice as Nana K. Adjei-Brenyah’s - tender and furious, wise and wise-assed - marks a major leap forward for us all. The very first story brought me to tears, putting me in mind of Babel or Chekhov. This is the fiction debut of the year, and I can’t cheer it loudly enough. Bravo, LA young man. We await your encore.’ - Mary Karr
