When We Speak of Nothing

The book on my table …

Published 3 July 2017 and refusing to take its place in any to-be-read sequence, Olumide Popoola’s new novel bursts out from line one, just as its gorgeous cover promises.

This isn’t a review or even a preview – more a shout-out of enthusiasm and congratulations.

For a powerful taste of the novel, listen to an excerpt on video, voiced by a young man.
