Congratulations to Caleb Azumah Nelson whose debut novel is out next month.
Caleb’s eagerly awaited debut novel ‘Open Water’ is to be published in February 2021 and is available to pre-order now through Viking Books/ Penguin.
More congratulations are due to Caleb who was also shortlisted for the BBC National Short Story Award 2020 for ‘Pray’, a ‘poetic parable about loss, longing and brotherhood’. Chris Power, one of the judges of the Award, described the quality of the shortlist as ‘exceptional’. You can currently listen to a reading of ‘Pray’ along with the other shortlisted stories on BBC Sounds/BBC Radio 4.
