Akwaeke Emezi's exhilarating new novel follows five people over the course of a weekend which will brutally upend all of their lives. When Kalu drops Aima at the airport, it marks the end of their four-year relationship. Shattered and broken open, he thinks that's the last he will see of his girlfriend.

But - reeling from the breakup - the pair are both drawn into Lagos: to separate nights of scandalous, decadent and sordid global parties. A way to escape, if only for a day. Just as two Nigerian sex workers visiting from Kuala Lumpur collide into the scene, everything goes awry when Kalu's actions plunge them all into a whirling descent through the corrupt, glittering underbelly of the city.
