Uzodinma Iweala is set to bless with a new book after his 2005 stunner Beast of No Nation.
After a 12-year break, Iweala is finally ready to bless fans with a follow-up novel, Speak No Evil.
The novel, published by Harper Collins (Neil Gaiman’s American Gods, Paul Coehlo’s The Alchemist), is set for a March 6, 2018, release.
Speak No Evil explores what it means to be different in a fundamentally conformist society and how that difference plays out in our inner and outer struggles.
Speaking about the book, the author of Little Failure, Gary Shteyngart, said, “A lovely slender volume that packs in entire worlds with complete mastery. Speak No Evil explains so much about our times and yet is never anything less than a scintillating, page-turning read.”
In the 224-page novel, a revelation shared between two privileged teenagers, Niru, who is gay, and Meredith, his best friend and support system, sets off a chain of events with devastating consequences.
