2022 saw writers from Africa and the Diaspora bring us some literary gems (see our list of Best Books of 2022). 2023 promises to be no different. So here we bring you a list of some of the upcoming books by writers from Africa and the Diaspora that we are most looking forward to reading in 2023.
A Spell of Good Things –Ayọ̀bámi Adébáyọ̀
Her award winning debut novel Stay With Me was an outstanding read which cemented Nigerian writer Ayọ̀bámi Adébáyọ̀’s status as a literary genius. This long awaited second novel has been described as a “dazzling story of modern Nigeria”, at the centre of which are two individuals from vastly different backgrounds, whose lives collide in spectacular fashion. Love, power, politics, this book has it all.
