Like his writing, Caleb Azumah Nelson's narration employs a musical cadence. This story is about a young first-generation Black Englishman whose parents are from Ghana. He navigates coming into his own through a variety of experiences. Nelson's voice is steady and consistent. He employs a poetic structure in each line. The descriptions of his relationships, whether it is the unrest between him and his father or the unfolding of intimate moments with a girlfriend, are like staccato notes. Line after line, his work is filled with both calmness and urgency. His voice is jazz-like--thick with moments of improvisation. The beauty of this story is in the author's rhythmic poeticized narration. T.E.C. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2023]
