In three novels, Emezi introduced the landscape of Nigerian childhood through the medium of fiction. Now, the author lifts the veil of invention to reveal the harrowing yet inspiring truths of their personal, spiritual, and artistic journey -- from the social constraints of childhood in Aba, Nigeria, through a lifetime of discoveries involving sexuality, storytelling, and self, to their determination to carve their way through the thorny labyrinth of the publishing world. Interweaving candid, intimate letters to friends, lovers, and family, Emezi reveals the raw pain of their journey as a spirit in the human world, the perils of all-consuming love and intimacy, and the hard-earned reward of achieving both literary recognition and a peaceful, joyous home. Electrifying and radically honest, animated by the same voracious intelligence that distinguishes their fiction, this is a revelatory account of what it means to embody multiple spirits, to fight for survival, and to bend the world to one's will.
