Hey friends! How’s everyone doing? I bring good news today —- *drum roll* A new release from Cassava republic which is set to be out in October 2021. Today, I’ll be sharing the beautiful cover of ‘An unusual grief’ by Yewande Omotoso.
“How do you get to know your daughter when she is dead? Mojisola’s attempt takes her on a journey of self-questioning that sees her re-examine her marriage and re-explore her sexuality in new, dark and kink friendly places.”
When her daughter Yinka dies, Mojisola is finally forced to stop running away from the difficulties in their relationship, and also come to terms with Yinka the woman. Mojisola’s grief leads her on a journey of self discovery, as she moves into her daughter’s apartment and begins to unearth the life Yinka had built for herself there, away from her family.
Through stepping into Yinka’s shoes, Mojisola comes to a better understanding not only of her estranged daughter, but also herself, as she learns to carve a place for herself in the world beyond the labels of wife and mother. A bold and unflinching tale of one woman’s unconventional approach to life and loss.”
I’m so excited to read this as y’all already know I like books that delve into mother-daughter relationships! #Anunusualgrief is definitely high up on my list of anticipated releases.
