“A number of books have been termed ‘godpunk,’ but Suyi Davies Okungbowa’s novel may be the subgenre’s platonic deific ideal, from its title to its plot to its terse but vivid prose… Assured and arch, unsettling and thoroughly enjoyable—an auspicious debut from one of the most promising new voices in the growing coterie of African SFF writers.”
— Peter Rubin
‘Vivid, visceral and with a strength of the voice that just pulls me right in. The god-littered world of David Mogo’s Lagos just won’t let go.’
— Jeannette Ng, author of Under the Pendulum Sun
