What the Critics are Saying

'When writing is this honest, it soars'

Yrsa Daley Ward

'In this latest work, Owusu does what all writers should aspire to. Push the boundaries of possibilities, play with style and technique, challenge both the reader and himself? Losing the Plot is confounding, heightened, intergenerational, and most of all brilliant. It presents to us a writer who will absolutely not be defined by rules; indeed, this book proves emphatically, without question, that there are no rules at all.'
