Caleb Azumah Nelson
What We Say: Caleb Azumah Nelson’s debut novel is a poetic, poignant London love story. It follows two young Black creatives – a photographer and a dancer who are never named – as they tenderly, tentatively fall in love and find refuge in each other. Beautifully exploring themes of race, violence and vulnerability, music fans will also love the fact that it’s steeped in soul, hip-hop and R&B references.
What They Say: “A beautiful and powerful novel about the true and sometimes painful depths of love” — Candice Carty-Williams, author of Queenie
