'A dazzling literary talent.' Esquire

Akwaeke Emezi's exhilarating new novel follows five people over the course of a weekend which will brutally upend all of their lives. They wanted revenge, they wanted people to be held accountable in a world where that just didn't happen. It was like expecting a rotten tree to bear fruit.

When Kalu drops Aima at the airport, it marks the end of their four-year relationship. Shattered and broken open, he thinks that's the last he will see of his girlfriend. But Aima is drawn back into Lagos: to the scandalous, decadent nightlife of her best friend.

Reeling from the breakup, Kalu accepts an exclusive invitation to one of his best friend's sordid, global parties - a way to escape, if only for a night. Just as two Nigerian sex workers visiting from Kuala Lumpur collide into the scene, everything goes to hell when Kalu's actions plunge them all into a whirling descent through the corrupt and glittering underbelly of the city.
