SOME OF US EXIST IN THE FUTURE By Nkenna Akunna
Chiamaka is new to all this. Fresh off the plane from the UK, she's new to Brooklyn and its extremes. She's new to queer dating. She’s new to being an immigrant. Most of all, she's new to the voices of the gods...
Utterly original, wryly funny and always gripping, Some Of Us Exist In The Future follows one woman’s journey to finding her place in a world that’s not all it seems.
