Have been very excited about this series since its release in late 2021, and my partner gifted it to me for my birthday. I love the writing of many of the contributors over the five volumes.
I'm an archaeologist, I love to read speculative fiction and feminist works (and why not both?), particularly from Africa.

There are separate parts of this book that have their own identity. When reading through the final chapters I wondered if this was really the same book I had started a few weeks earlier. This is to say, the protagonists have a powerful way of growing up and becoming something different as the story progresses.
What stuck with me the most was how Ifemelu was "not Black" until she arrived in the USA.
