Σύνοψη του βιβλίου "Freshwater"

A debut novel introducing a fierce new literary voice:

'Sheer perfection: sexy, sensual, spiritual, wise. One of the most dazzling debuts I've ever read.'

- Taiye Selasi, author of Ghana Must Go.

Ada was born with one foot on the other side. Prayed into existence by those who believe they are her parents, Saul and Saachi struggle to deal with the volatile and contradictory spirits peopling their troubled girl.

When Ada comes of age and heads to college, the group of selves within her grows in power and agency. An assault leads to a crystallization of her alternate selves: Asughara and Saint Vincent. As Ada fades into the background of her own mind and these selves - now protective, now hedonistic - seize control of Ada, her life spirals in a dark and dangerous direction.

Narrated from the perspectives of the various selves within Ada, and based in the author's realities, Freshwater explores the metaphysics of identity and mental health. Feeling explodes through the language of this scalding novel, heralding the arrival of a fierce new literary voice.
