All words seem inadeuate It is exceptional It is beautiful And it is unlike anything I've ever read beforeIt's challenging too I don't want to sell it to readers who won't like it It's a clever and dense literary work heavily influenced by Nigerian cosmology It takes some time to settle into the unusual narration the story is narrated by Chinonso's chi a kind of guardian spirit but once I did I could not put it down She poked her hand into the dark and secret places of his life and touched everything in it And in time s
