What the Critics are Saying

A beautiful and powerful novel about the true and sometimes painful depths of love'

Candice Carty-Williams, Sunday Times bestselling author of Queenie

Open Water is tender poetry, a love song to black art and thought, an exploration of intimacy and vulnerability between two young artists learning to be soft with each other in a world that hardens against black people

Yaa Gyasi, bestselling author of Homegoing

This is an amazing debut novel. It's a beautifully narrated, intelligently crafted piece of love that goes deep, then goes deeper. You should read this book. Let's hear it for Caleb Azumah Nelson, also known as the future.

Benjamin Zephaniah, award-winning poet, playwright and novelist
