Told in what feels like a stream of consciousness, we follow the highs and lows of K’s life, from his time in care and his mother’s illness to his return with his Ghanaian birth family, all of which lend themselves to the deterioration of his mental health. Owusu’s work is the literary embodiment of vulnerability and strength through acceptance. This year's winner of the Desmond Elliott Prize.
