Author: Akwaeke Emezi
Synopsis: Ada begins her life in the south of Nigeria as a troubled baby and a source of deep concern to her family. Her parents, Saul and Saachi, successfully prayed her into existence, but as she grows into a volatile and splintered child, it becomes clear that something went terribly awry. When Ada comes of age and moves to America for college, the group of selves within her grows in power and agency. As Ada fades into the background of her own mind and these alters—now protective, now hedonistic—move into control, Ada’s life spirals in a dark and dangerous direction.Narrated by the selves within Ada, and based in the author’s realities, Freshwater explores the metaphysics of identity and mental health, plunging the reader into the mystery of being and self. Freshwater dazzles with ferocious energy and serpentine grace, heralding the arrival of a fierce new literary voice.
A home away from home. Filled with literary minds, cool people and very versatile category of readers. I enjoyed joining the meetups. I would recommend it for booklovers too.
Mainland Book Cafe is more than a book club. It is where you are free to be who and what you are. I am not going to trade it for anything in this world.
The perfect place for every book lover and art lover. The community is warm and friendly and it is a safe place for all conversations ranging from books, to politics, love, sex, relationships and life.
