He encounters people from different cultures and classes who will provide insight on his journey—which takes him to Brussels, to the Nigeria of his youth, and into the most unrecognizable facets of his own soul.“[A] prismatic debut . . . beautiful, subtle, [and] original.”—The New Yorker   “A psychological hand grenade.”—The Atlantic   “Magnificent . . . a remarkably resonant feat of prose.”—The Seattle Times   “A precise and poetic meditation on love, race, identity, friendship, memory, [and] dislocation.”—The Economist
