Time to start the week with an all new cover reveal!
Read Furiously is excited to announce the debut novel from Itua Uduebo.
Parade of Streetlights follows a year in Kolawole Idowu’s life and his many interactions and experiences with people around him. Following a life-changing incident from his youth in Lagos, Kola always had a haunting desire to return to Nigeria and commit his time to making a difference. This is a novel about the choices we make, the ways we restrict ourselves needlessly, and the freedom of embracing the authentic pursuit of happiness. Kola’s narrative voice is a welcome addition to the literary canon and his story will stay with you long after the last page is finished.
