God's Children Are Little Broken Things

Winner of the 2023 Dylan Thomas Prize

Ifeakandu, Arinze


Staff Pick, Literature (by Tim )

A stunning collection of short stories, this debut book from Arinze Ifeakandu explores contemporary queer love in Nigeria. Heartbreaking and beautiful, Ifeakandu’s stories explore love and modern relationships in the face of societal and family pressures.

'Although he writes about queer lives and loves in Nigeria, Arinze Ifeakandu's voice is sensually alert to the human and universal in every situation. These quietly transgressive stories are the work of a brilliant new talent' Damon Galgut, Booker Prize-winning author of The Promise

'Contemporary love stories with moments of real surprise and revelation
Brandon Taylor, author of Real Life

'Gorgeous... A hugely impressive collection, full of subtlety, wisdom and heart' 
Sarah Waters, author of Fingersmith

'Captures the tenderness and tumult of queer love, familial love, self-love, and the many ways love elates and eludes us.... Masterful. What a glorious collection!' Deesha Philyaw, author of The Secret Lives of Church Ladies

'Magic in motion... A staggering, heartshattering show'
 Eloghosa Osunde, author of Vagabonds!

'Raw tender grace... A serious literary talent has emerged'
 Colm Tóibín, author of The Magician

'Quite simply a tour de force'
 Sarah Hall, author of Burntcoat
