In his New York Times bestselling novel Friday Black, Hermitage Fellow Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah creates a series of short stories that simultaneously feel like a dystopian future and a case study of our present moment. This surreal quality leaps off the page from start to finish as the stories swerve between both startlingly familiar and shockingly strange landscapes. Hear from the author about the importance of “beginnings” and how this has shaped his work.

Registration required.
