DMA Arts & Letters Live: Akwaeke Emezi
Akwaeke Emezi reimagines the love story in You Made a Fool of Death with Your Beauty, a fresh and seductive novel about a young woman seeking joy while healing from loss.
Feyi Adekola wants to learn how to be alive again. It’s been five years since the accident that killed the love of her life and she’s almost a new person now - an artist with her own studio and sharing a brownstone apartment with her ride-or-die best friend. After a whirlwind summer, she’s started dating the perfect guy, but their new relationship might be sabotaged before it has a chance. This new life she asked for just got a lot more complicated, and Feyi must begin her search for real answers.
Emezi’s vivid and passionate writing takes us deep into a world of possibility and healing, and the constant bravery of choosing love against all odds.
