Adult Book Discussion: "The Death of Vivek Oji" by Akwaeke Emezi
By St. George Library Center

Join the St. George Library Adult Services team for our monthly book discussion! This month we are reading  "The Death of Vivek Oji" by Akwaeke Emezi

Raised by a distant father and an understanding but overprotective mother, Vivek suffers disorienting blackouts, moments of disconnection between self and surroundings. As adolescence gives way to adulthood, Vivek finds solace in friendships with the warm, boisterous daughters of the Nigerwives, foreign-born women married to Nigerian men.

But Vivek’s closest bond is with Osita, the worldly, high-spirited cousin whose teasing confidence masks a guarded private life. As their relationship deepens, Osita struggles to understand Vivek’s escalating crisis.
