Description

‘A playful, powerful debut… A poignant reminder of how tight a hold mental illness can have’ ZAKIYA DALILA HARRIS

‘Chukwu meticulously and brilliantly balances tough topics like depression with biting comedy, crafting a narrative about a young woman trying to survive and help others do the same’ SHONDALAND

A lot is happening to Me. Will Me survive?

Sahara is a student at one of the most elite universities in America – and she is Not Okay. Her grades are subpar, she’s not Nigerian enough for her family, and her long-term Life Partner* is threatening to take over. When she’s not contemplating killing herself or the wealthy white students around her, she’s receiving an increasing number of ‘Unfortunate News’ emails, which inform her that the few Black classmates she has are disappearing.

Will Sahara end up joining the ranks of ‘The Unfortunates’, or can she avoid becoming yet another statistic?

Written in the style of a thesis, J K Chukwu’s highly original debut is a darkly funny and biting take on the campus novel, set in the mind of a young Black woman who is losing hers.
