Let's consume ourselves on Friday black, by Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah

From now until a recent date, each new day will be a new opportunity to enjoy the good consumption of the unnecessary and the peremptory. It's all a matter of labeling even our time as an offer. The point is that Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah (perhaps one day he will decide to call himself by a symbol, a la Prince), take a singular succession of authors such as Colson Whitehead to approach a chronicle of the world from that notion of minorities, still capable of discerning between the proceeding and the involutional (see that these two terms are not even opposite, but it is a strange confusion that guides us as consumers in the global village).

With Nana's visions made into stories, we consider whether therapies, self-help and the zillions of currents for the balance of the soul, karma or whatever cannot be simple make-up removal with which to cope with inertia that is clearly unbearable. Because the material is already more transcendent than the existential. And looking out into the void, stripped of that "soul" that can simply be a reflection of surrendered humanity, we can be capable of everything to possess, like pharaohs locked in death chambers alive ...

A mall where shoppers fight to the death to get their favorite items on sale; a theme park in which racist men play at taking justice into their own hands; a post-apocalyptic world where every day a nuclear catastrophe must be relived in an eternal loop. The twelve shocking stories in this book are a dystopian, devastating and always surprising portrait of today's North America as well as an unfiltered, satirical and crude denunciation of the hypocrisy and lack of values ​​of our societies, the absurd consumerism or violence against the weak and the different. At the heart of all these stories its protagonists try to maintain their sanity and humanity while everything falls apart.

Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah has revolutionized the current literary landscape with this extraordinary debut that has become an award-winning best seller that has not stopped gaining followers. With an overflowing imagination and talent and a refreshing look, Adjei-Brenyah shakes the reader and places him in front of his own contradictions.
