Open Water by Caleb Azumah Nelson


Bookseller Review by Anastasia:

‘A debut of immense skill, this is well in line to be one of the best books of 2021. It is stunningly powerful and raw in the tenderness and vulnerability it portrays.’

Available – Ready for despatch or collection within 5 - 7 days


Two young people meet at a pub in South East London. Both are Black British, both won scholarships to private schools where they struggled to belong, both are now artists – he a photographer, she a dancer – trying to make their mark in a city that by turns celebrates and rejects them. Tentatively, tenderly, they fall in love. But two people who seem destined to be together can still be torn apart by fear and violence.
