Attend in person
In her inventive debut collection of short stories Vanessa Onwuemezi establishes herself as a dazzling new voice in fiction. Dark Neighbourhood takes readers on a surreal and haunting journey through a landscape on the edge of time. In stunning, precise words Onwuemezi conjures characters who watch their worlds come undone: whether it is a man witnessing a murder in a suburban garden, or a line of people waiting for the gates to open into another world. In conversation with poet Andrés N Ordorica, Onwuemezi examines alienation and community today.
