Akwaeke Emezi presents The Death of Vivek Oji
In conversation with Rivers Solomon

Akwaeke Emezi, author of Freshwater and Pet, returns to Greenlight to present their highly anticipated new novel, The Death of Vivek Oji. One afternoon, in a town in southeastern Nigeria, a mother opens her front door to discover her son’s body, wrapped in colorful fabric, at her feet. What follows is the tumultuous, heart-wrenching story of one family’s struggle to understand a child whose spirit is both gentle and mysterious. What does it mean for a family to lose a child they never really knew? Propulsively readable, teeming with unforgettable characters, The Death of Vivek Oji is a novel of family and friendship that challenges expectations—a dramatic story of loss and transcendence that will move every reader.  Akwaeke discusses the novel with award-wining writer Rivers Solomon, author of An Unkindness of Ghosts and The Deep.
