Read full description of the books:



Forest Gate is a painful, poignant, and brilliant novel. It comes as close to perfect as any novel I've ever read. Akinti pulls no punches in a visceral and vivid display of life in both London's Forest Gate community and a war-torn Somalia. Centering around representatives from those two walks of life, James Morrison and Armenia, and their budding relationship in the face of the tragic suicide attempt by James and Armenia's brother, Ashvin, which Ashvin does not survive. The book is an extremely difficult read, not because of any confounding prose, but simply because the depictions of violence and tragedy are vivid and heartbreaking. However there's not an ounce of sensationalism here, every depiction of violence is essential to the narrative's impact. Akinti offers commentary on issues of race and class struggle from a contemporary perspective that is fresh and relevant to modern society not just in the Western world but throughout the world. Forest Gate is an extremely fulfilling read and a beautifully crafted work of literature.
