British–-Ghanaian writer Caleb Azumah Nelson’s debut novel Open Water is, “an intense, elegant” (Guardian) tale of two young Black British artists who find love as they struggle to succeed in an environment that simultaneously elevates and rejects them. It was named to scores of publications’ most–-anticipated–-books–-of–-2021 lists, including Esquire, Vulture, ONYX Magazine and Vogue (UK). Nelson has contributed writing to the The White Review and Litro, and he recently won the People’s Choice prize and was shortlisted for the BBC Short Story Award. Also an acclaimed photographer, he was shortlisted for the Palm Photo Prize.
